The King's Men, part of the megalithic Rollright Stones

The Rollright Stones comprise three separate monuments dating from the Neolithic period. The main monument is a ceremonial stone circle now known as The King's Men. Nearby is a monolith known as The King Stone and a small group of upright stones (known as The Whispering Knights) which guard a 5,000 year old burial chamber.
