This is an amazing henge with all the stones all in place, it is like a mini Stonehenge with nobody except you and some cows who are quite friendly. Meg herself has really lovely stone markings (and some others from idiot visitors unfortunately on the back).

We visited this site along the C2C Route. In the morning, we initially had the place to ourselves and we felt that it was very spiritual. There is no information here, just the large stone circle in a field, so it is worth reading up about it beforehand.

One to visit if you're in the area but don't go out of your way. Bit tricky to find - one of the Q&As has a postcode which helped a lot. It's a huge area with loads of stones, goodness knows how they got them there all that time ago. Bit of a weird place though, it's basically a farmer's... More

Can be viewed from the Lane or on a short level walk from your car. Big rocks (some other circles are tiny rockeries), and Long Meg has a great marry face, plus cup and ring markings. Worth a look!
