KING ARTHUR’S ROUND TABLE
A Neolithic earthwork henge dating from c2500BC, once believed to be King Arthur's jousting area. This is a site for the enthusiast, because there is little to see; however, Mayburgh Henge nearby is more impressive. King Arthur's Round Table is located at the southern end of the historic village of Eamont Bridge (the War Memorial is a landmark) and consists of a low circular earth platform surrounded by a wide ditch and earthen bank, a layout characteristic of prehistoric henges. Part of the henge was destroyed when the road was built. Two standing stones once stood at one of the entrances.
