Stanton Drew is a village in Somerset famous for its stone circles. The biggest one is the Great Circle which is second only in size to the circle at Avebury. The stone circles near Stanton Drew are believed to have been created at some time between, 3,000 and 2000 BC. There are several listed buildings in Stanton Drew (situated in the Chew Valley) which were erected between the 13th and 15th centuries.
There are, of course legends attached to the mysterious stone circles (henges) in various places in the British Isles, and the ones near the village of Stanton Drew are no exception. It is said that the stones were once dancers at a wedding feast held on a Saturday, but the devil himself turned up at the feast with a violin and the dancing continued into Sunday, the Sabbath. The dancers were turned to stone because they had profaned the Sabbath.
