RICHARD X

Where would life be without NATURE’S inspiration

The spark of ALL … the tree of life

Centred at Earth’s core

The rogue spirit that defies the law

Covered up forever ? … no more

Merely this and nothing more

All together in whispered tone

We gather round the stones

The stone of tone …

Our inner sanctum Santorum

The heart – the cave – listen to our call

FLASH OF KNOWING ….

Sky Clad Window of our soul

Fire of the heart … emerging

Inspiration for all … is ALL

Long Meg Stone Circle

Our video is a guided walk in the Eden Valley of Cumbria. We start from Little Salkeld and walk along side the River Eden and Settle to Carlisle railway line. We pass through Longmeg Mine (dis) to Lacy’s Caves and then continue following the river to Daleraven Bridge. We return to Little Salkeld visiting Long Meg and her Daughters Stone Circle. We see much wildlife on this easy 4.5 mile walk, allow 2 hours.

A weight of Awe not easy to be borne
Fell suddenly upon my spirit, cast
From the dread bosom of the unknown past,
When first I saw that family forlorn;
Speak Thou, whose massy strength and stature scorn
The power of years – pre-eminent, and placed
Apart, to overlook the circle vast.
Speak Giant-mother! tell it to the Morn,
While she dispels the cumbrous shades of night;
Let the Moon hear, emerging from a cloud,
At whose behest uprose on British ground
That Sisterhood in hieroglyphic round
Forth-shadowing, some have deemed the infinite
The inviolable Creator that tames the proud.

William Wordsworth 1822

Local legend claims that Long Meg was a female healer who with her daughters, was turned to stone for profaning the (Christian law) Sabbath, as they danced wildly on the moor. The circle is supposedly endowed with magic,

Nearby on one stone are some geometrical carvings – consisting of a spiral and five concentric circles. The three circles of Long Meg, Little Meg and nearby Glassonby are the only ones in Cumbria with such carvings.
