The Rollright Stones free pdf Excerpt from The Rollright Stones: History Legends in Prose Poetry For several miles the countries of Oxford and Warwick, are bounded by a narrow straight roadway. From the Cross Hands to the Edge Hills, this road follows the northern boundary of the Cotswold country. To the north west lie the fertile valleys and plains of the Warwickshire Feldon country, whilst eastwards the ground gently slopes to the valley of the Cherwell. The ridge thus divides the watersheds of the Thames and Severn. This road, in places now only a grass track (as between Traitors Ford and the Banbury Shipston main road), is probably one of the oldest in England. Long before the Roman Legions made their wonderful arterial roads perhaps even before the fair haired Celts swarmed over Britain this roadway stretched across the country from the neighbourhood of Gloucester (the Ermine Way) to Northampton. On the north end of the Edge Hills, the road now runs along what was once the trench of a British Camp, and from there to the Rollright's, there are innumerable traces of that early British civilization, about which we know so little. Forts and Barrows there are in plenty, but all other remains are dwarfed in interest by the stone circle known as the Rollright or Rollrieh Stones. Situated on the very edge of the ancient roadway, a short mile from the busy main road that connects the industrial midland towns with Oxford and the South Coast, weather beaten with the storms of centuries, they stand as a monument to that race of men who lived in this England of ours, whilst still the Pharaohs ruled in Egypt, and Phoenician and Greek were venturing their fragile ships past the Pillars of Hercules, and along the stormy Atlantic coasts.
