I've just been going thru some notes & texts about the destroyed 'Chapel Flat' stone circle, near Dalton, Carlisle, and found a real discrepancy between Waterhouse's description of the site (Stone Circles of Cumbria) and the one he cites in his reference of the place by William Whellan (History & Topography of Cumberland, 1860)
I'm probably grasping at straws here, but has anyone come across the same descriptive discrepancy before, but - more importantly - sorted it out? Do we know where the circle that Whellan describes was actually located? Anyone know where the hermit's chapel was? Waterhouse adds another reference to this site, about an article by J.E. Spence in the Transactions of the Cumberland & Westmorland Archaeo Society from 1935. Does anyone have that to hand?
Here's hoping - Paul
