Night fishing off the jetty at Coniston in the Lake District
Came across this beautiful Stone circle quite by chance whilst working in Penrith. I loved the detail in the main stone which almost looks like a face – maybe it is Long Meg herself!!? On one side there were interesting primitive stone markings of circles. As I was studying the main stone a farmer passed me on his tractor, amazingly his driveway to his farm passes straight though the circle and he squeezed between a few stones!
Long Meg is the largest of the 69 stones that create a stone circle 60 ft wide. Legend has it that Meg was a witch who along with her daughters was turned into stone for breaking the Sabbath by dancing wildly across the land.
One of Carlisle’s most beautiful church built with the local red sandstone, the sunset really enhanced the shadows and the frost made it simply just really cold.
