Default Megalithic sites, please share your favorite..

I love all things megalithic. Stone circles, cairns, standing stones, henges, barrows. I thought i would start a thread where we can all share our favorite spots with one another.

Default The devils ring and finger,shropshire

This used to be a part of an entrance to a long barrow, now long forgotten. Its not well known and you need to dodge some electric fencing to get to it but its an absolute gem! It outside a Village called Norton in Hayles, in Shropshire.

Ah great thread jojo, I also love all things megalithic too!

I'm lucky enough to live in the south so have two of the best (imo) very close to me - Stonehenge & Avebury. However, I've travelled around a bit & have experienced more, but these two still have to be my all time faves








I also want to get to Newgrange sometime soon, would be especially good on the solstice to see the sunrise through the chamber, but I'm not sure if you have to have pre-arranged permission for that or whether it's even possible? Do you have any idea?

Castlerigg is an amazing circle, wow what a view you get from up there!! It was years ago when I was there & recall it being really busy, so unfortunately I didn't experience that many quiet peaceful moments there.

I also want to see the Callanish Stones too, they look awesome.

Aw that's a shame, although it does seem quite remote. It's definitely on my list too

This thread's made me get my Modern Antiquarian book by Julian Cope out now, I'm getting itchy feet & wanna see some more sites!! Do you have the book too? It's brilliant imo as it shows ALL the megalithic sites around Britain.

Oh yes! i do! I used to be a national sales manager and my job involved driving all over the country. I would plan my routes via the modern antiquarian book. It was like my bible! lol, Its battered and well used now but has to be one of the best!

Default Duloe Stone circle, Cornwall/Devon border

This circle is made of white sparkly quartz crystal. The stones are really quite big the largest i estimate to be about 8-9ft tall. They are truly magical and I felt that the circle had a mystical healing quality.

Yeah that's a lovely dolmen in that last post too.

I know what you mean about the Men an Tol, it is another timeless place. I've been there a couple of times over the years & I don't want to leave once I'm there, could spend hours on that moor, although you sometimes get some dodgy weather coming across from the sea!

Other fave places in Cornwall are:

The Cheesewring


The Merry Maidens


Carn Euny Fogou & Village (although I got chased by a bull walking to that place, lol)

Default nine stone close, derbyshire

This is a typical "druid" type circle. There used to be 9 stones but now there are only 4 within the circle itself. there is a 5th stone which has been dragged a few 100 ft away by some farmer in the past and is now part of a dry stone wall.
