Castlerigg Stone Circle - Keswick - Cumbria - <br />

The stones are of a local metamorphic slate, set in a flattened circle, measuring 32.6 m at its widest and 29.5 m at its narrowest. The heaviest stone has been estimated to weigh around 16 tons and the tallest stone measures approximately 2.3m high. <br />

The circle was probably constructed around 3200 BC, making it one of the earliest stone circles in Britain and possibly in Europe
