Landmark
The megalithic site of Castlerigg dates back to the Neolithic Age and features large stones arranged in a circle. Estimated to be over 4,500 years old, the formation resembles an ancient amphitheater and boasts the highly dramatic backdrop of Cumbria's tallest peaks. While the function of these Neolithic circles remains a mystery, experts speculate that they centered around some ceremony in the large central space. Bring your camera for some memorable photographs. Make Castlerigg a part of your Keswick vacation plans using our Keswick trip itinerary planner.
