Stone Circle


Pastscape information:

The stone circle at SD 1497 8133 was visited by English Heritage field investigators in June 1999 as part of the National SAMs Survey Pilot Project.

The circle is situated on a south-facing, natural terrace, with extensive views along the coast and over Walney Island. The remains of the circle comprises 5 stones still in situ and two probable displaced stones; the northern quadrant is clipped by a farm track and the latter two stones have been pushed to either side of it. A number of other smaller stones lie in the immediate vicinity of the circle; it is possible that they may represent the ploughed out remains of a central burial cairn.
