Although this is the third largest complex of prehistoric standing stones in England, the three circles and three-stone ‘cove’ of Stanton Drew in Somerset are surprisingly little known.
Members of CSSC benefit from a great range of discounted and free days out and shopping vouchers.
The Great Circle, 113 metres in diameter, is one of the largest stone circles in the country and has 26 surviving upright stones. Yet recent surveys have revealed that the circles and cove were just part of a much more elaborate and important ritual site than had previously been imagined.
Open any reasonable time during daylight hours. A £1 fee is charged by the landowner to access the circles field
