Celebrating sun set ! Why can’t we celebrate it in our garden at home ? We went miles to see sun setting around the stones . Then we have learned the truth that you come here to celebrate the sun rise , well any excuse we will go to celebrate something anyway. There are deep stories behind this Castlerigg Stone circle, photographing is celebrating but I need to go back start reading paganism, it is kind of shamanism where my origins come from. Stones are all in my interest where ever they are I am there to touch them and hold them smell them…by the way we have met some lovely people there, if they see their photos here and want to add their stories to this page I would appreciate it so much, please send me your Stone Circle memories.
Castlerigg is perhaps the most atmospheric and dramatically sited of all British stone circles, with panoramic views and the mountains of Helvellyn and High Seat as a backdrop. It is also among the earliest British circles, raised in about 3000 BC during the Neolithic period. www.english-heritage.org.uk
