Castlerigg Stone Circle. Keswick.  England

This stone circle is one of the many prehistoric features that are more numerous in Britain than any other European country. Castlerigg is a simple circle of stones, 30m in diameter, with outliers and a square of stones within the circle. It was constructed 500 years before Stonehenge, in around 3000 BCE. Unlike Stonehenge it has no burials or cremations associated with it. It is believed to be a purely astronomical structure.
