The Castlerigg Stone Circle, set atop a low grassy hilltop in Cumbria, is one of the most visited and, dating back to 3000BC, one of the earliest examples in the country. The Neothlithic stones lie on an English Heritage site owned by the National Trust and draw thousands of visitors each year to ponder their existence. Measuring around 30 meters in diameter, the circle features 38 stones around its perimeter and a further 10 standing stones forming a rectangle in the middle.
