Stanton Drew is a small village in northeast Somerset. It lies in the Chew Valley, to the north of the Mendip Hills and about 8 miles south of Bristol. The village is probably most famous for its prehistoric Stanton Drew stone circles, the largest being the Great Circle, a henge monument consisting of the second largest stone circle in Britain (after Avebury). The stone circle is 113 m in diameter and probably consisted of 30 stones, of which 27 survive today. The village also has a range of listed buildings, dating from the 13th to 15th centuries and is well worth visiting if in the area.
