These are marvellous pictures Val, particularly the top one. Thanks for sharing.
 
I believe I have been to this circle, we were camping near Penrith at the time. Beautiful countryside.

Those pics are wonderful Valerie, thank you for sharing them :) They're beautiful. Wish I could go there and see them in person. Same with Big Ol' Stonehenge. Someday!

Beautiful photos, Valerie. Castlerigg can be an eerie place, especially at the moment of sunrise. I was there in 1956; there were fewer tourists around back then, and I had the place almost completely to myself.

Not generally known, is the fact that a straight line drawn between the summits of Skiddaw and Helvellyn, two of the highest and most prominent peaks in the area, passes exactly through the centre of Castlerigg circle; and at sunrise on Midsummer Day, as viewed from the centre of the circle the sun rises precisely over the summit of Feind's Fell (otherwise known as Cross Fell) in the distant Pennines.

The people who set these stones up were no ignorant, fur-clad savages; they knew exactly what they were doing, and they did it with astounding precision.

The Castlerigg Stones are in the Lake District, near Keswick (Cumbria) in the North West of England

And no, it wasn't a dumb question.

It looks amazing! I've always wanted to go to Stonehenge and I will just have to add this place to my list! Just wish there were more things like it in the states!

The Castlerigg stones are certainly not as massive as the Henge Stones, but it's great to visit these places.
 
You do have places like that in the States, you have places where the Native Americans lived and worshipped their deities. It's easy to overlook these things and take them for granted when you live with them, I've been guilty of that myself....LoL
