The Rollright Stones consist of a Neolithic stone circle 100 feet across, set in a wooded clearing. Across the road is a larger solitary King Stone, erected in the Bronze Age, while a short distance away is a Neolithic portal dolmen known as the Whispering Knights. The legend goes that the king and his soldiers were turned to stone by a witch.

Perhaps the most famous hill figure in Britain, the White Horse is carved into the hillside below Uffington Castle hill fort. The carving has stripped away the topsoil to reveal white chalk, making the figure visible for miles. We do not know who built the White Horse, or if it is even meant to be a horse, but that just adds to the mystique of the site. The White Horse is in an area rich in prehistoric remains; a short walk away is the chambered tomb of Wayland's Smithy. Uffington, Oxfordshire, England
Wayland's Smithy was originally a megalithic mortuary house, and was later transformed into a chambered tomb fronted by an elaborate entrance. The barrow is only a few yards off the ancient Ridgeway track, and a mile from the Uffington hill fort and the famous White Horse.
