Castlerigg Stone Circle

Castlerigg Stone Circle is one of the earliest and largest stone circles in Great Britain and Europe. It is said to have been built 4,500 years ago, by the prehistoric farming community. In 1913 it was given to The National trust for protection.

A single standing stone, approximately three feet high can be found at the edge of the field by a stile to the south-west of the circle (img.ca5). There is no evidence the stone belongs to the circle. History only tells us that in the early 20th century, a farmer found it just below the surface. He then dug up the stone and erected it.
