Nine Ladies of Stanton Moor

Stone Circle


I'm rather proud to have started off the demolition of the rather ugly surrounding wall back in 1982. Several overnight stops later half of it was gone. Shortly after, the then DOE took what was left of it away. I'd like to thank all who did their bit as it moved at an alarming rate!

I spent several nights in Nine Ladies back in the early eighties and was always facinated by the effect the circle has on sounds after dark. My friends and I likened the effect to that of talking down the middle of a bog roll tube. It kind of amplified the voice and gave it a wispy effect. There's a lot written about the causes of this so I won't regurgitate that here - however, I would be interested to read of anyone else's experiences of this, either at Nine Ladies or any other Stone Circle.
