Stanton Drew Circles and Cove

Although this is the third largest collection of prehistoric standing stones in England, the three circles and three-stone 'cove' of Stanton Drew are surprisingly little-known. Recent surveys have revealed that they were only part of a much more elaborate ritual site.

Please note: Cattle may be present on parts of this site, dogs are not permitted in these areas. Please refer to available advice for walkers on dealing with cattle in advance of your visit.

The landowner reserves the right to charge a £1.00 admission fee. Self led education visits are free.
