Hathersage Moor Ring Cairn

Ring Cairn


At last!........
After what must be double figure attempts, both singily and combined. The mighty Neil and I finally found this ring cairn. To say we've missed it so many times.... it's quite an impressive site.

The stones that make up the cairn are alot bigger than any of the other Derbys' ring cairns, some of the stones looked as if at one time they may have stood (thats only going on the shape of 'em).
Right on the banks of a stream. Stone free interior and with a definite South facing entrance.

On a clear day the Beech trees at Minninglow are easy to spot on the distant Southerly horizon.
