Birkrigg Common

Birkrigg Common

Details

The Druid's Circle lies on the south-east side of Birkrigg Common about 0.5km from the coast, overlooking the village of Bardsee.

It consists of two stone rings. Only about 30 concentric stone circles exist in the UK, the best example being Stonehenge, with no others in Cumbria. The inner circle consists of 12 stones of local Carboniferous limestone, with heights from 0.3 to 0.95 metres. The outer ring consists of about 20 stones places very irregularly, with a diameter of about 24m. Some of the stones are covered by turf, with a wide gap to the north-east, where no stones have been found.
