Casterton Stone Circle is but a short walk from the village. The circle consists of 19 standing stones, none of which are over two feet high. The stones form a circle of around 62 feet in diameter, positioned on an irregular earthwork mound. A circular feature in the bank may be a cairn. The circle originates from the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age (2000-600 BC).Over 1,800 artefacts have been found at the site , which include drinking vessels, flint arrowheads and a bronze spearhead.
