Big Moor


Along with the stone circles there are over 60 cairns on Big Moor as well as prehistoric field systems. Over Barbrook itself on the oppsite side, at Swine Sty, to the circles is a free standing stone cist, capstone off and hut circles and field systems of a Bronze Age settlement. There are two thin stones on this side of the brook which are often mistaken for standing stones, but they are in fact guide stoops shot up by the army in the 1940's. The whole of the moor is criss-crossed with packhorse tracks. stubob Posted by stubob
