THIS attractive guide is the first overview of its kind to be published for many years and benefits from previously unpublished research. The guide will take the reader on an exciting journey of discovery into these enigmatic monuments and their incomparable landscapes so beloved by the Romantics. The book lists in detail some 50 sites and is superbly illustrated with colour photographs, plans and rare antiquarian plates. The guide also provides the most extensive gazetteer of stone circles yet published, many of which have now disappeared from the landscape. Each site entry in the guide is given the necessary information to aid the location of the circles. It is hoped that this guide will provide a resource which will appeal to the general reader, visitors and academics.

About the Author:

Robert Farrah's main interests are hill walking, mountaineering and prehistory, which have combined to provide an unique insight and understanding of these mysterious monuments - the stone circles. His special interest is archaeoastronomy and he published his first article on the subject The Megalithic Astronomy of Lundy in the early 1990s, the result of research with the late Professor Gerald S. Hawkins. His articles have contributed significant original research and have appeared in various journals worldwide. More locally, in 2002, he helped present an exhibition 'Stone Circles and Standing Stones of Eden' for Penrith Museum. He has lived in the Eden Valley since 1984 and is a member of the Eden Archaeological Action Committee and has acted as a guide to the stone circles for various local authorities.
