With the wet winter months behind us , the ancient Rollright Stones are anticipating a busy and eventful season to welcome visitors from all over the world.

The Rollright Stone monuments , spanning from early Neolithic up to Bronze age, remain one of the most fascinating and mystical ancient monuments in the country and are globally recognised as such. The Rollright Trust who own and maintain the site look forward to a very busy season with an anticipated footfall in excess of 24,000 visitors.

Visiting the site you walk in the footsteps of our ancient predecessors and enjoy terrific views into Warwickshire and Oxfordshire , spectacular sunsets and on clear nights, sparkling views of the stars and planets from a nationally recognised Dark Sky site and the home base for the Chipping Norton Amateur Astronomu Group.
