The Rollright Stones

Stone Circle


'Ancient Places' by Prof Glyn Daniel and Dr Paul Bahn (1987, Constable and Company) mentions a folklore tale that says infertile women can be cured by touching the stones with their bare breasts. In the Eighteenth Century the local young people used to meet near the King Stone on Midsummer's Eve for dancing and feasting. pure joy Posted by pure joy
