The Duddo Standing Stones Circle Northumberland


The Duddo Stones, Northumberland.

This is a remarkable Neolithic standing stones circle situated in Northumbria,  4 miles from the Scottish border and is believed to be at least 4,500 years old.
Originally there were seven standing stones and five remain in place.
The site obviously had a deep mystical meaning for people as human remains have been found which were dated as being from hundreds of years after the stones were erected.  
The local people have given these stones the nicknames "the women" or  "the singing stones".
