Stone Circle (Destroyed)


This circle was described by Pennant in his 18th century Itinary of Scotland & Northern England. he described the site as a large circle of grit stones about 60ft in diameter surrounding a vast cairn of stones. Pennant located the site to opposite Mayburgh on the other side of the Eamont. Waterhouse says that this would place the circle in the southern outskirts of Penrith.
