20c. The Prehistoric Duddo Standing Stones Circle
Duddo itself is a small village set in rolling farmland and plantations and 8 miles southwest of Berwick-upon-Tweed but is best known for its circle of prehistoric Neolithic standing stones (great mega megaliths!).
As you approach them the Duddo Stones look absolutely magical when viewed against a back drop of a grey sky and the sun drenched field of grain.
The five remaining amazingly eroded Duddo Stones.
They are located two miles north of Etal.
No one knows the function of this wonderful prehistoric archaeological site but a human burial was found in the centre of this megalithic circle.
The Cheviot Hills can be seen in the distance.
Two people stand in for the missing two stones.
A fond farewell to these magnificent megaliths of 4500 years ago.
A fitting end to a day in the Cheviots!
