Castlerigg Stone Circle
Tonight, I am posting a video clip of Castlerigg which may be one of the earliest circles in Europe.
The structure is spectacularly situated among the mountains of the English Lake District, standing on a level stretch of ground on Chestnut Hill near Keswick.
There are 38 surviving stones out of the original 42. The stones stand on a flattened ring 107 ft NNW-SSE by 96ft 9ins.
The circle may have been connected with a significant Neolithic stone axe industry in the nearby Langdales.
