Stone circles and mud

Last Friday saw my friend Sue and I searching for stone circles.  She is the expert, I just go along for the ride.  We had seven we wanted to see, all fairly near Shap.  We found them all, as well as long wet grass, mud, sheep droppings and hills to climb.  It’s amazing to think they’ve been there for roughly 3,000 years, give a year or two.

Some were quite complete, some more scattered, but all in bleak, high places.  The views were sometimes fantastic, but sometimes we were in Shap mist.  I daren’t use technical terms as to which age they came from or the types of worship that took place, I’m too ignorant.  But it was certainly a day to blow the cobwebs away!
