Blakeley Raise Stone Circle (Kinniside Stone Circle)

This is a great little stone circle on a small plateau of land known as Blakeley Moss with the hill of Blakeley Raise behind it to the southeast.

This prehistoric circle stands next to the road that runs south from Ennerdale Bridge to near the coast at Calder Bridge and is hence very easy to find.

The circle has been sympathetically restored and with excellent views, this is one of the easiest of the Cumbrian circles to access sitting right by the roadside.

Not long after the First World War, a restoration job was accomplished by a working party in 1925.

Having cleaned out and measured the sockets in the ground in which the stones were originally set.

The group diligently searched the local area for and located-the original twelve stones, and completely restored the site.

Today the circle is probably what it was when first laid out, thousands of years ago in the Bronze age.
