Stanton Drew

10 11 An overview of The SiTe the megalithic complex Stanton Drew consists of three stone circles, the most prominent, known as the Great Circle, being one of the largest stone circles in Britain. With a diameter of approx 112m 367.5ft and an area of some 2,000 square metres 6562ft, it is second only in size to Avebury, and, like its sister temple in Wiltshire, was originally approached by an avenue of standing stones. The two other circles are situated to the northeast and southwest respectively, the Northeast Circle being 29.6m 97ft in diameter, and the Southwest Circle 42m 138ft. The Southwest Circle is aligned to a standing stone situated to the north of the site known as Hautevilles Quoit, while a group of three stones known as the Cove can be found in the garden of the village pub. It is thought that the Cove may once have been a cromlech an arrangement like a table.
