Long Meg and her Daughters Bronze Age stone circle
Long Meg and her Daughters Bronze Age stone circle
It's thought that the "circle" originally consisted of 68 stones set in an oval shape measuring 340 ft (100 m) on its long axis; of these, 59 are extant (of which 27 remain upright). Long Meg herself is a 12 ft (3.6 m) high monolith of red sandstone 80 ft (25 m) to the southwest of the circle, and is marked with examples of megalithic art including a cup and ring mark, a spiral and rings of concentric circles - see NY5737 : Long Meg (photographed by David Medcalf). An aerial view of the circle is shown in NY5737 : Long Meg and her Daughters, Eden Valley, Cumbria (photographed by Simon Ledingham). For further info, see the Wiki entry LinkExternal link .
