Description
Situated two miles east of Keswick and nestling in a natural amphitheatre of the surrounding hills lies the stone circle of Castlerigg or Keswick Carles. It is one of many stone circles around Britain which date from the Neolithic and post-Neolithic periods. It was probably built as a place for religious or ceremonial meetings rather than used as a burial monument. Image taken at dawn on a cold and frosty winters morning. Space for copy and text. ProPhoto RGB profile for maximum color fidelity and gamut.
