Located near the confluence of the Lowther and Eamont rivers, this small (54 yards diameter) henge monument has been much altered by the construction of nearby roads, and by the landlord of the local pub, who, in 1820 used the inner circle of the henge as a tea garden.

There is a theory that there is some connection between King Arthur's Round Table and Mayburgh Henge, some 400 yards away. The orientation of the entrance to Mayburgh, which faces the Round Table, gives some credence to this theory, but there are no real facts to back this up.

There is quite little to see at the Round Table, and the location, so near the busy A66, does little to give you a sense of the site in ancient times.

The site is administered by English Heritage, and is open at any reasonable time.
