Stanton Drew Stone Circle

About

Less famous than Stonehenge and Avebury, the standing stones at Stanton Drew are nonetheless the third largest stone circle in Britain and have drawn visitors for centuries.

Their obscurity and the lack of any modern intrusions upon their surroundings have protected their solitude and character. Visitors here can wander the fields, picnic at the stones, and wonder why they were ever placed here by the ancient Britons.

There are three stone circles at Stanton Drew. The Great Circle, at 113 metres in diameter, is the second largest after Avebury, and has 26 surviving upright stones.
