Unlike Stu, luckily i managed to find this first time, ably guided by my gps and a 10 figure GR, i admit though, i almost missed it, went back for another look, as you do and found it.
The site is quite overgrown now but a dozen or so stones are still easily seen, especially the ones to the North East, one of which i measured at 97 centimetres in length.
The best preserved part of the ringcairn is to the North East with the bank easily visible, though you can trace it's circumference all round, the entrance to the south is well defined.
To the North Higgor Tor looms large maybe a kilometre away, whilst Over Owler stands proud to the West.
I was amazed how close to the brook this site is, no more than a metre or two, this lead me to think i was looking in the wrong area as i've never encountered a site so close to water before.
This is an amazing little site well off the path though not to much of a struggle to get to if you start off at Over Owler where you'll need to head down hill towards the brook.
I was very impressed with the size of the stones and i could easily be convinced this was a stone circle and not a ringcairn at all.
Go have a look, you'll be impressed, though i will say this one is bordering on "anorak" territory.
After what must be double figure attempts, both singily and combined. The mighty Neil and I finally found this ring cairn. To say we've missed it so many times.... it's quite an impressive site.
The stones that make up the cairn are alot bigger than any of the other Derbys' ring cairns, some of the stones looked as if at one time they may have stood (thats only going on the shape of 'em).
Right on the banks of a stream. Stone free interior and with a definite South facing entrance.
On a clear day the Beech trees at Minninglow are easy to spot on the distant Southerly horizon.
I've never found this ring cairn, J.Barnatt mentions it in his 1990 book but doesn't give any idea, apart from the grid ref, to it's location. Okay the grid ref. should be enough but in this case it ain't.
I've scoured the area a few times and scanned it again with a guy who had scoured it a few times as well......phew. Still nowt.
JB reckons there's a rubble/stone bank 1-2m wide with a diameter of 7x5m, with a stone in the NE....entrance in the South, a boulder free interior.
