Artist's Description

The view of across Castlerigg stone circle towards Blecathra.

The stone circle was probably built around 3000 BC – the beginning of the later Neolithic Period – and is one of the earliest stone circles in Britain. It is important in terms of megalithic astronomy and geometry, as the construction contains significant astronomical alignments.

Although its origins are unknown it is believed that it was used for ceremonial or religious purposes.
