Attractions > Attractions
Close to Stanton Drew, there are three prehistoric stone circles at this site, the largest of which is 112 meters in diameter and is composed of 27 stones. It is the second biggest in the country after Avebury. Although many of the stones have fallen over it is still an impressive Iron Age site. One of the traditional stories of the stones is that this was a wedding party where everyone was turned to stone by the devil. The devil came in disguise and played his violin from Saturday through to Sunday morning when at first light all were turned to stone.
