Castlerigg Stone Circle S05078bw

Castlerigg Stone Circle has been called the most beautifully located stone circle in Britain, in a spectacular setting on a high moor above Keswick, with a 360° panorama of the fells and mountains of the Lake District. Dating from about 3000 BC, there is a small rectangle of stones within the circle, which is unusual in stone circles, also a small mound which suggests a burial place. Some suggest it could have been an astronomical observatory.
