Swinside Stone Circle
Swinside Stone Circle
Also known as Sunkenkirk Stone Circle, Swinside Stone Circle is one of the 'Big 3' stone circles in Cumbria, the other two being NY2923 : Castlerigg Stone Circle and NY5737 : Long Meg and Her Daughters. This little-visited stone circle is one of the finest in Britain and has 55 stones, though there were probably originally 60 stones. Dating from the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age, the stones are of porphyritic slates and form a circle of diameter 28 metres.
