Knipe Moor

Stone Circle


... I am told that the Scar Races were held here in early summer. There is a stretch of ground more than a mile long and several yards wide which has at some period been cleared and roughly levelled like a terrace, and this is known as "the race-course."
From an article by Miss Noble: "The Stone Circle on Knipe Scar", in the Transactions of the Cumberland and Westmorland Antiquarian and Archaeological Society (v 7, 1907).
