Living history, easily accessible and free.
Cannot believe I have never heard of or visited this before.

Reasonably easy to find a large stone circle but not in as spectacular setting as Castlerigg Stone Circle near Keswick

I'll admit that I'm fascinated by England's stone circles, and Long Meg is amazing. It's very large, and provides a great view of the surrounding countryside. It's a bit out of the way, but worth the visit-and maybe it will speak to you, too.

This stone circle is well hidden away and not really signposted - so its a bit of a surprise how well preserved it is and the size of it. For me it doesn't quite match up with the Castlerigg stone circle near Keswick which is in a really beautiful spot - but its certainly worth a visit

The vastness of this stone circle is magical. It's huge, yet all enclosed and hidden away. Seeing the remaining spiral labyrinth on the main standing stone is worth the drive.
