Stone Circle

Castlerigg (Stone Circle) by Chris Collyer Castlerigg Plan - Version 1 (cribbed from the information board at the site)

Location, location, location – Castlerigg for me is all about the setting.
The stones sit in a natural amphitheatre of hills that must have impressed the circle’s builders as much as they impress the modern visitor but I always have trouble figuring out which hills are which from just the OS Map – hence this plan.
If anybody spots any mistakes or can add any more information, particularly about where the various sunrises/sunsets occur in relation to the hills please let me know.
