Birkrigg Common

Birkrigg Common stands high above Morecambe Bay to the south of Ulverston. Limitless sky and uninterrupted views of the vast sands of Morecambe Bay are to be found on this public common.

The Druids Temple lies on the south-east side of Birkrigg about half a kilometre from the coast, overlooking the village of Bardsea. It consists of two concentric stone rings. Only about 30 concentric stone circles exist in the UK, the best example being Stonehenge. Several bronze age tumuli can be found on the Common.
