Duddo Stone Circle

Duddo Stone Circle

This stone circle next to the small village of Duddo, Northumberland, was created in the Neolithic period and is made up of five large blocks of stone. An excavation in the 19th century revealed the roots of two additional stones – making the original total seven. It’s surmised that the missing stones were removed in the mid 1800s.
