Castlerigg Stone Circle in Keswick, Cumbria of England

Day 9 P.M.

We travelled for almost 1000km through different kinds of road and I realised driving along the narrow drystone fencing wall passing through the farm lands by far was the BEST! I like it so much because roads are simpler plus I was in a Jeep, woohoo!!! I was less worried about the traffic because basically there were almost none, but if  there were one we need to stop because the road is too narrow for two cars. Come on, we are in countryside. We don’t do speeding and we can enjoy the sceneries and the time we take along the driving process.

Can you see another stone fencing road behind the moos at a slightly higher altitude?

Archaeologists are still unclear with the original motives of this circle. It could be a meeting place for ceremonial or trading back in 4,500 years ago. What is known is that thousands of tourist flocked into this place each year hoping to get a glance of this masterpiece with the stunning landscape.
