Part of the Swinside stone circle

  • Description

    "The nearest upright stone has lovely bands of a white mineral - I wonder if it had significance for the builders? It also happens to be one of the tallest (possibly the tallest) stones in the circle. A few stones beyond is a 'portal' where two stones are placed just outside the ring. This picture was taken at mid-day so, from the shadows, it was easy to deduce that this entrance faces more or less due east." Photo by Karl and Ali, 2013.
