A lovely little site set on a gentle northeast slope that leads down to Umberley Brook, there's a real sense of seclusion and isolation about these stones probably enhanced by the trek across the moor to reach them. All three are just over half a metre tall, about a couple of metres apart and with the axis of presumed square being northnortheast - southsouthwest, assuming of course there was ever a fourth stone.
Three lovely stones in a really remote location - it must have been great to rediscover them!
GPS reading SK 28250 70868. The best directions I can suggest are to start at the wall junction at SK 2783 7072 and walk in a straight line towards the very obvious mast on Puddingpie Hill - in dry conditions in February it took me 500 paces until the stones suddenly appeared in a grassy/reedy area just beyond a small patch of heather.
Discovered in 1985 after the moors had been burnt back, these 3 standing stones are thought to be the remains of a 4 poster although no trace of a 4th stone has been found. Well hidden in the grass and heather.
On the higher ground just to the south of Gibbet Moor North are a handful of cairns of various sizes.
Hard to say whether they are burial or clearance cairns...the stones of Gibbet Moor North aren't visible from them.
