Description

Castlerigg is sited about 1½ miles outside Keswick, in the county of Cumbria, England. Probably the most dramitically placed stone circle in England, surrounded by the stunning hills of Skiddaw, Blencathra, Lonscale Fell and Helvellyn amongst others. It has about 38 stones, a possible outlier and is reported to be among the earliest of British stones circles, constructed in about 3000 BC during the late Neolithic period.

The scenery is stunning. It's also amazing to think those stones have been there for 5000 years without people coming along and destroying them.
