Appleby Castle, overlooking the town of Appleby-in-Westmorland and the River Eden, was founded by Ranulf le Meschin at the beginning of the 12th century. In about 1170 a square stone keep was added, known as Caesars Tower, which is now one of the best preserved examples of its type, having been little altered in 800 years

Long Meg is the tallest of the 69 stones, about 12 feet high, with three mysterious symbols, its four corners facing the points of the compass and standing some 60 feet outside the circle.
