The Whispering Knights

Nearest Town: Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire

OS Grid Reference: SP 299 308

Directions: On unclassified road north of Chipping Norton between A44 & A3400. Follow signs for the village of Little Rollright. Site is occasionally signposted, large layby, beware of fast moving traffic! Signed from the main circle.

Site Notes: This site, in an adjoining field to the Rollright Stones, is the remains of a burial chamber known as a Portal Dolmen. These stones, mounted by a capstone, and covered with earth would have formed a tomb for the people of the time. Surrounded by railings like the King Stone, it is a sad site, yet not without power.
