Looking north-west from a high point on the outside bank. This view shows a good portion of the whole structure with the stones following the edge of the ditch. The group of stones in the centre are easily seen.

The way up to Arbor Low is from the buildings of Upper Oldhams Farm in the distance. There is a small layby area on the road and if you turn into the farm driveway there is another small parking area for visitors on the right at the entrance gate to the farmyard.

This shows the surrounding ditch of about 6 foot depth and its surrounding bank or 'henge'. These circular henges are, apparently, unique to Britain.

The stones forming the circle may be clearly seen in this view. It appears that all the stones have fallen in the same direction, possibly blown over by the continually stong north winds, and that one of the stones still rests on the upright stumps of others indicating that they were, at some time in the past, standing upright.
