Swinside Stone Circle

Start point: Cragg Hall (SD 181 874)

Swinside Stone Circle

Weather: Sunny with the odd shower.

Today’s short walk cannot be described as a fell walk but it is interesting nevertheless. Swinside Stone Circle is widely regarded as one of the finest in Europe, if not the world. It is not as well known as Castlerigg, for instance, as it is well off the beaten track, but at 28.5 metres in diameter with 55 stones, it certainly makes an impressive sight and an easy Sunday afternoon walk.
