SWINSIDE STONE CIRCLE
This little-visited stone circle is one of the finest in Britain. It has 55 stones, up to 3 metres (10 feet) high. Like Castlerigg, it dates from the Neolithic period and its entrance seems to line up with the midwinter sunset. Its other name, Sunkenkirk, comes from a legend that people tried to build a church here, but the Devil kept pulling it down.
Muncaster offers a full day out – or more – with something for everyone. From families with children looking for a range of activities to keep everyone entertained to groups looking for an excellent value venue for a day excursion or to visit one of a range of evening events for arts and culture, Muncaster Castle and Gardens and its Hawk & Owl Centre earn their place as a top attraction in Cumbria.
