Duddo Stones

Stone Circle In Duddo, Northumberland

A small five stone circle set in a beautiful location in Duddo Northumberland.

One of my favourite places in the Fabulous North are the Duddo Stones otherwise known as the Duddo Five Stones. Located in Duddo (obviously) they were originally four stones until a fifth was added in 1903 to improve the skyline.

Apparently there was orignally seven stones with two empty sockets being discovered during an excavation in the 1890s.

The stones are formed of a soft sandstone and have become deeply fissured by natural weathering approximately 4000 years ago (in the Early Bronze Age).

The stones are on a small hill and over amazing views of the Cheviot Hills to the south and the Lammermuir Hills to the north.

And a beautiful sunset show by Amy Leigh Laverick.

The stones are on private land with no formal right of way, but the landowner has cleared a permissive path across the field to the stones.

Finally some additional photos and a lovely bit of video from Malcolm Aitchison.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue pele tower up a remote hill, a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
