Castlerigg Stone Circle

Interesting
Castlerigg with its 38 megaliths situated on grassy land near Keswick is older (5 000 years old) than the legendary Stonehenge. Its use, like that of Stonehenge, remains a mystery. The site is all the more remarkable in that it offers a view extending far out towards Thirlmere and Helvellyn to the south and Derwentwater and Keswick to the west.
