Swinside Stone Circle

Location : Broughton-in-Furness  –  Grid Ref : SD 172882

Swinside Stone Circle is one of the three most important stone circles in Cumbria, and consists of 55 stones set in a ninety foot diameter circle.

Although the circle is located on private ground, it can easily be viewed from a nearby public footpath.

The walk from the nearest parking area to the circle, which is located on the eastern flank of Black Combe, takes around half an hour there and back, and passes through beautiful but rarely busy countryside.
