Ancient Cumbria

There is so much ancient stuff in Cumbria you could almost call it the “Crumbly” county.  There are, for example, around 50 stone circles alone in Cumbria.

 

We’ve picked out the biggest, best fun and easiest to get to.  Starting at the top of this page with the oldest and generally getting more ‘modern’ as you scroll down.

 

There is a link below each block that will take you to the main ‘Grown Up’s’ page on Visit Cumbria which has yet more info.
