If there was ever a place to build a stone circle, this is it. Built in the Bronze age and technically a stone Oval, the name comes from the largest of the stones, Long Meg, And her 59 daughters At some point since the Bronze age, a farm access track was built through the end of the circle, great shame. Meg has several ancient carvings that are still visible and worth a look. The circle is entered through the avenue in front of Meg, with a back drop of the Lake district, and views of The Pennines, it must have been spectacular back in the day. I was lucky enough to have the place to myself for half an hour, before the next car load of chavvy oiks turned up to shriek and clamber over the ancient monument. Time to leave..
Well worth a look, and for free..
