Kilmartin is one of the UK’s top prehistoric landscapes.
Castlerigg stone circle in Cumbria was placed in state guardianship by General Pitt-Rivers in 1883 along with a number of other prehistoric monuments (e.g. King Arthur’s Round Table; Mayburgh Henge; Nine Ladies in Derbyshire). This decision came in the wake of the Ancient Monuments Act (1882).
The site is now managed by the National Trust.
A monolith can be found in the churchyard of All Saints at Rudston, Yorkshire. The stone stands at 7.7 m high.
The location is as well known as the burial place of the novelist Winifred Holtby (1898-1935).
