Castlerigg Stone Circle

Castlerigg is perhaps the most dramatically sited of all British stone circles, with panoramic views and the mountains of Helvellyn and High Seat as a backdrop. It is also among the earliest British circles, raised in about 3000 BC during the Neolithic period.

Limited parking is available at the site and a good option is to walk from Keswick to the stones, taking approximately 30 minutes.
