|The inner ring at The Druid's Circle, at Birkrigg Common,|
near Ulverston, in Cumbria.
|Me, walking around the inside.|
|A closer view of two of the stones.|
|You can just see three of the stones in the outer ring,very|
low down in the grass - almost at ground level.
|This is another of the outer circle stones, right up against|
the bracken, which stretches far as the eye can see.
|This was the view looking back over a gate as we walked up |
to the stone circle. You can see Bardsea Church spire, and
Chapel Island, one of many tiny islands in Morecambe Bay.
There is a small road which runs up on to the common, quite near the stones, but it doesn't seem to be used much, and we walked along minor roads, tracks, footpaths and bridleways, going up and up and up, until we thought we couldn't go any further. It was tough going in places, because we are not really used to walking, and we are not very fit (our legs ached so much the next day), but we enjoyed looking at the wild flowers in the fields and hedgerows, and listening to the birds.
