Blakeley Raise

Stone Circle


This site is 3 1/2 miles from Egremont and straight off the main road. Burl describes the circle as 11 small stones 54 ft in diameter. they were re-rected in 1925, but there is some confusion as to what the 'partial restoration' actually involved. Either replacement of 8 stones that were removed to make a gate or just re-erection of stones in their original postions.
Easy to get to and worth visiting.
