Rollright Stones Long Compton Reviews
The Rollright Stones Mar 12, 2008
The rollright stones are a prehistoric stone circle like that of stonehenge which are supposedly older.
Its a great place to stop and chill out on a long journey as its not far from the M40. There are no real facilities as such except a makeshift container which on weekend days is turned into a gift/teashop/ticket office. If you travel there on a weekday however you will be trusted to leave some money in the honesty box - but you really should as the site gets no funding and survives from honest donations and helpful guardians of the site.
There is much history/myth behind the stones which provides and interesting read about a King who was turned into stone by a witch among other stories. Its is another site where people join together to celebrate the solstice and im sure you'll find times that this has happened if you type it in at YouTube.
A lovely place which is potentially free if you can live with the guilt soon after.
