Nine Ladies Stone Circle - Stanton Moor - this stone circle is situated by the side of the public footpath across Stanton Moor. The moor itself, a 1096' gritstone outlier set amidst miles of limestone, was once greatly revered by our prehistoric ancestors who littered the moor with cairns and stone circles. The circle is thought to date from the Bronze Age and was probably erected around 1500 BC.
