You can find Mayburgh Henge a couple of miles south of Penrith. It sits on a strip of land between the River Eamont and the River Lowther.
The henge is thought to have been built sometime between 1000BC and 2000BC
Most of the standing stones have disappeared, there being only one left which is 10 feet high. The site consists of a circular bank 50 yards across and up to 20 feet high, with a single entrance. There were at least 8 standing stones here 200 years ago
Another pre-historic site, an earthwork called King Arthurs Round Table is 400 years away to the east
