Introducing the Rollright Stones

The Rollright Stones is a ancient site located on the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border in England. The complex consists of three main elements, The Kings Men stone circle, the King Stone, and the Whispering Knights.

The name “Rollright” is believed to derive from “Hrolla-landriht”, the land of Hrolla.

Earth mysteries and other alternative ideas

There is no doubting that the Rollright Stone Circle, in common with many other ancient sites, is a place of mysterious beauty and subtle energies. It seems highly likely that Neolithic men and women “not only shared these experiences, but had an understanding of how to find such places; of the lie of the land associated perhaps with some special union of earth and sky. The more of their sites one visits, the stronger this impression grows.”
