Lovely frosty walk

Lovely little walk, also stopped to see Arthur's round table. Nice bit of neolithic/pagan history. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Penrith.

Mayburgh Henge is located just off the old A6 road at Eamont Bridge on the south side of Penrith. It is basically built as a sort of e amphihteatre-like structure entirely built of millions of river pebbles. The structure is circular, about 100 metres in diameter, with an apparent entrance from one side. It seems as though it was built... More

We had a nice walk to the henge from Arthur's table. Was worth the walk to have a little look at the henge. Sites like this always feel quite magical first thing in the morning. Worth a visit if your in the area. Probably not worth a special trip there as there's only one stone left.. it doesn't cost anything... More

Mayburgh Henge is a large circular banking built from river stones now covered by grass & trees but once an outstanding meeting point for the many tribes in the area. A few of the standing stones within the henge are still in position. How amazing that today this place is adjacent to where the main North/South route of the M6... More

Despite the nearby traffic, this is a wonderful spot and right next to a very good hostelry (which I didn't go in). Beware though - there's absolutely NO mobile signal here! Not very many people were around so I had the place almost to myself.

Websites and Information board at the henge indicated that dogs where allowed but on a short leash. When we arrived we spotted a large sign on the gate "no dogs" We had no intention of leaving our dogs alone in the car on a hot day so we turned away. Wasted trip. Please get this sorted and correct your signage... More

Easy to park and a short walk to the top of the henge, which was interesting. Had to do this one on my own as Mr had to stay with our canine travelling companion. No dogs allowed on site.

There is not much to see here, just a massive bank of stones with a large "amphitheatre" - and only one remaining stone. However, archaeologically important. I was quite impressed with the size of it!
