    HIYA Just got set up to visit this circle at Eskdale Cumbria, so if anyone headed in that direction tomorrow let me know!!
    No info about the circles, but should be a good view given the area is out in wilds.
    I'll be there from mid pm, poss earlier tomorrow so give me a text if you are passing by!!
    Not far from the Swinside one we visited a few weeks ago.
    A quarter of stone circles are in Lake District and sumwun has to visit them...hard work I know but I really don't mind doing it!

    I'd have gone with y' Tricia - but 'religious duty' calls on Saturday, and so far the Everton/Liverpool derby-game's been a cracker. ...But if y' gonna keep wandering into Cumbria looking for sites, see if y' can get hold of a copy of John Waterhouse's Stone Circles of Cumbria, which is a real beaut!

    Hope you get some good photos, then we can start adding more profiles of the Cumbrian sites onto TNA.

    Have a good 'n'! Cool
