Dating from the Bronze Age, this is England's third largest stone circle that consists of a huge ring (the Daughters) of more than 60 stones and Long Meg, a 12-foot-high block of red sandstone.

Can be viewed from the Lane or on a short level walk from your car. Big rocks (some other circles are tiny rockeries), and Long Meg has a great marry face, plus cup and ring markings. Worth a look!

Well worth a visit to this ancient site, a short walk from the road, take care in wet weather. Count the stones, legen says that you will not get the same number twice

Long Meg is probably the poor relation of Castlerigg near Keswick but it's on a much larger scale. Secluded location adds to the atmosphere.
