This site is well worth a visit. It`s a "good" walk from Keswick town centre & uphill. The standing stones are really thought provoking & the views are fantastic.

Always have to take a trip to the stone circle everytime I am in the area! Truly awesome bit of history along with great views and peace if you can catch it on a quiet day!
