Swinside Stone Circle

  • Description

    "Also known as Sunkenkirk Stone Circle, Swinside Stone Circle is one of the 'Big 3' stone circles in Cumbria, the other two being [[5383899]] and [[5511934]]. This little-visited stone circle is one of the finest in Britain and has 55 stones, though there were probably originally 60 stones. Dating from the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age, the stones are of porphyritic slates and form a circle of diameter 28 metres." Photo by G Laird, 2018.
