Lovely little walk, also stopped to see Arthur's round table. Nice bit of neolithic/pagan history. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Penrith.

Despite the nearby traffic, this is a wonderful spot and right next to a very good hostelry (which I didn't go in). Beware though - there's absolutely NO mobile signal here! Not very many people were around so I had the place almost to myself.
