Arthur's Stone is an atmospheric Neolithic burial chamber made of great stone slabs, set in the hills above Herefordshire's Golden Valley.

Like many prehistoric monuments in western England and Wales, this tomb has been linked to King Arthur since before the 13th century.
According to legend, it was here that Arthur slew a giant who left the impression of his elbows on one of the stones as he fell.
