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

Don't expect facilities, but this is a would be a lovely site for a picnic or to view a sunrise/sunset.

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!

This was a stop on a walk we were doing, and is close to King Arthur's Round Table earthwork. It is up a hill, but worth it, as you come over the top and look down on the single remaining stone of the henge. There is a bank all around it, with one entrance point (seems to be angled towards...

Not sure what exactly I was expecting, but not what I found. What blew me away was trying to figure out not only why, but how on earth they did it. The work and effort involved to produce something so massive, transporting and stacking all those stones, would have been immense. It was beyond imagining, but for all that effort,... More
