Stanton Drew stone circles

Stanton Drew stone circles


Stanton Drew, United Kingdom (GB)
The Stanton Drew stone circles are just outside the village of Stanton Drew, Somerset. The largest is the Great Circle, a henge monument consisting of the second largest stone circle in Britain (after Avebury). The stone circle is 113 m in diameter and probably consisted of 30 stones, of which 27 survive today. The North East Circle is 30 m in diameter and probably consisted of 10 or more stones, of which 9 are individually recognisable. The South West Circle is 40 m in diameter, and probably has more stones than the North East Circle, as it is larger in size.
