about

Castlerigg, Max Ridgway - guitar, recorded on July 22, 2015. The stone circle at Castlerigg (also known as Keswick Carles, Carles, Carsles or Castle-rig) is situated in Northwest England, near Keswick in Cumbria. It is thought to be one of the oldest of several megalithic stone circles found in the British Isles, possibly constructed around 3200 BC. The mysterious site has fascinated antiquarians, scholars, and poets for centuries. Samuel Taylor Coleridge, in 1799, visited Castlerigg with William Wordsworth and wrote of it, that a mile and a half from Keswick stands “…a Druidical circle [where] the mountains stand one behind the other, in orderly array as if evoked by and attentive to the assembly of white-vested wizards”. In John Keats’ Hyperion the passage “Scarce images of life, one here, one there,/Lay vast and edgeways; like a dismal cirque/Of Druid stones, upon a forlorn moor…“ is thought to have been inspired by his visit to the stones.
