  Castlerigg Stone Circle
by zuriga

The Lake District is home to many of England's stone circles. They go back to prehistoric times and resemble what we see at Stonehenge, although these are not fenced off. The stone circle has been tenuously dated at 3200BC. Castlerigg Stone Circle is one of the finest in Cumbria, it is spectacularly situated within a panorama of rugged hills of ever changing character, depending on the mercurial Lakeland weather.

Address: Castle Lane St Johns Castlerigg and Wythburn
Directions: About 30 minutes north of Ambleside on the road to Keswick.
