Three stones at the Swinside circle

  • Description

    "Three stones from the northern arc of the prehistoric circle at Swinside (referred to as 'Sunkenkirk' on the OS maps). The central stone is possibly the tallest of the circle. All of them seem to be tough Borrowdale volcanic rock from fells to the north which is why they have survived for thousands of years. The flanks of Black Combe beyond are composed of the much less robust Skiddaw Slates." Photo by Karl and Ali, 2013.
