|The Burial Ground|
It was no surprise that the Quakers had chosen the same place as our ancient ancestors had on Birkrigg Common for their stone circle. I wonder what our Quakers had thought of that those ancient stones.
There was no obvious signs that this was a burial ground, There were no mounds of earth. It was enclosed with local stone walls - obviously the sheep "tended" the short grass. There were tell-tale signs! There was however a low door with an inscribed metal plate and an inscribed stone inside. The location of Sunbrick is here and the location of the Birkrigg Stone Circle is here. The inscriptions on the two plaques are below.
