This place is definitely a must see. The site is easily accessible from Keswick, just a short drive from the town. There are no designated parking spots as it is quite a rural area, but you can pull off the road and park for free....More

Well worth a detour. Very accessible and a big space which feels like a stage amongst the high fells

Never been to Stonehenge, this place is great. The views around are stunning. Plenty of people there, a couple of younger ones climbing on the stones, but they've survived thousands of years of people climbing on them. Well worth a visit. Needs new boards at...More

I had a private photography lesson just as the sun came up. What a fantastic experience! Fortunately the hordes of tourists didn't arrive until we finished. ''Tis is a spectacular place and I highly recommend it to everyone!
