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

People at Curbar in Derbyshireused to set bowls of cream on the hill-tops where they thought that the fairies mostly dwelt. The cream was always drunk, but the fairies were never seen.

Barbrook cairns (Barrow / Cairn Cemetery) — Fieldnotes

Added simply as a site to gather thoughts and images relating to the large burial cairn-field -'cemetery', largely found between barbrook I and barbrook II SC's.

Visible either side of the track between the SC's, but 1-2 'outsider' rocky bumps exist also.

Kerbed cairns in part, some more simple in design, MOST are robbed out, some quite extensively so, forming neat little 'halos' upon the grounds' surface
