Before You Go

Mayburgh is a large and impressive Neolithic henge. Its banks stand up to three metres high, constructed of pebbles collected from the nearby river.

Near the centre is a single standing stone. Old drawings suggest that it was one of a group here, with two more pairs standing at either entrance, but they have since been removed.

Both henges can be visited as part of a walk devised by the Eden Rivers Trust. The route also takes in Brougham Castle, which is a great place to stop along the trail. It has a small café, gift shop and toilet facilities.
