Seven Stones of Hordron Edge

Stone Circle


About 2 years ago my daughter and I visited the circle on Hordron Edge as part of a circular walk, and had some difficulty accessing it from the nearest road. I went for the high jump and she opted for a bit of limbo dancing. From the circle we returned to the car at Sheepwash Bank (large car park) with little difficulty.
So, park at Sheepwash Bank (238838), walk along the road fist north west, then west, then south and turn right on to path on to Bamford Moor. Follow this path roughly north west with the stream on your right and the magnificent Stanage Edge behind it. this part of the edge runs north west anyway so it acts as your compass. Soon you reach the watershed and begin to descend Jarvis Clough, where Hordron Edge becomes apparent to your right and running off to the north.
All this sounds a lot but on a nice day it's no problem, and there are many other sites of interest in this area.
