Rollright, Oxfordshire

Not far from Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire are the Rollright stones, which consists of a stone circle, a burial chamber and a standing stone, all within short walking distance from each other. 

The seventy seven weathered limestones of the stone circle is one of the highest number of stones I can recall seeing in a circle.

The five stones of the Whispering Knights neolithic burial chamber are found four hundred yards away to the southeast.

Not far from the stone circle and over the road in Warwickshire is the King's Stone, probably erected in the bronze age.
