Castlerigg Stone Circle

This is only a micro-walk but Castlerigg Stone Circle is a fascinating thing to visit and wander around and is the nearest thing the Lake District has to Stonehenge. It was constructed as a part of a megalithic tradition that lasted from 3300BC to 900BC, during the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Ages.

It is situated barely a mile east of Keswick on a narrow country lane. There is space for a few cars beside the road and it's a simple matter of just crossing the road and entering the field. Information boards describe the stone circle and its history and the Wikipedia entry has lots of information too.
