Topic: UK pagan places

anyone recommend any places not too far out of London that are of pagan interest - if these places also have some nice pubs and the odd book shop/record shop so much the better

look forward to your suggestions...

Queens Woods...opposite Highgate
Apparently 13 oak trees planted in a circle for druids to  dance around naked on a full moon or some hippie bullshit, haha. As told by a tall mysterious figure after midnight once when friends and I were out biking one night. Still pretty cool

Also. Coppetts Wood N Ldn too, mass burial ground for black plague? ...off topic

Re: UK pagan places

Is Oxfordshire too far? The Rollright Stones, well documented place of fucked upness. Time slips, weird magnetic anomalies. Check out the Dragon project for details. Best site for sites is Julian Copes Modern Antiquarian....

Re: UK pagan places

Greensted Church (just outside M25). Not a Pagan site of course (a Christian site), but it dates back to a time when the lines between 'Christianity' and 'Paganism' were much less clear. Everyone should visit. It's about a seven mile cross country walk from Epping tube station following the Essex Way.

Within the M25 - you can go to Epping Forest and walk through the Iron Age Hill Forts - Loughton Camp and Ambresbury Banks. They're not much to look at, but they're bonafide ancient sites and therefore have an otherworldly atmosphere - and can be reached via a decent walk/en route to the Forest Gate Inn.

A bit further away on the the other side of London there is obviously Wayland's Smithy and Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire.
