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.
