Nine Ladies stone circle
Nine Ladies stone circle

A 10-minute walk from an unclassified road near Stanton in Peak brings you out onto Stanton Moor. The Moor here is covered in light forest. In a glade in the forest is this small circle of nine stones, with an outlying stone some 40 metres away.

The location is wonderful, though somewhat unusual in that the circle is surrounded by woods. Most of the stone circles that I personally have visited have been in much more exposed locations. In this case, the location gives an atmosphere of quiet and sheltered peace. There is an interpretive panel on the site.
