This is one of the greatest treasures of English history, completely understated and apparently little known except by experts and locals! Magical, awe inspiring in their age and mystery, but I just wish that there was more information available about the site. Apart from the notice on the gate, there is nothing to guide you around the site, and I'm... More

Amazing !!! I wonder if they are in line with avebury and stonehenge? If so that might be significant, if they were all connected!!

Not on the Stonehenge scale but still an impressive historical site of, mostly, standing stones spread out in 2 or 3 fields. Don't miss the three even more ancient stones up near the church where there are benches on which to sup your cider from the nearby public house.

Visit the Stanton Drew stone circles and cove for a magical experience. When we visited the stones were only just becoming visible in the mist. Very atmospheric. Its a great area for walking too and good pubs in the area for a meal and a place to rest weary feet.

I am not a Druid. More of a Pantheist than any "organised religeous following". However I find these Stone Circles deeply mystical and moving. Stanton Drew is no exception. I have been on a number of occasions and each time I am filled with peace and tranquility on entering the Circle and being with The Stones. Somehow they resonate with... More

Stanton Drew was recommended by the customs agent at the Bristol airport. It took a little searching, but the find was rewarding. Visit Stonehenge and Avebury, but come visit this rustic and casual site. We saw another party, but they were leaving as we arrived. We had the circles to ourselves. What a treat! Wear boots. This is a pasture... More

Our visit was driven by our desire to visit a stone circle off the beaten path, void of tourists, visitor centres and rules. It was wonderful to be able to wander at our leisure and explore the stone circles and the cove. At the entrance there was an honesty box where we deposited our coins, and picked up the information... More

Stanton Drew actually comprises 3 circles and the Cove which is outside the pub in Stanton Drew -The Druids Arms. Mostly people visit the two larger circles which are said to have been built over an ancient celtic place of learning. The smaller circle has a concentrated female energy and the larger circle has a very open energy in the... More
