Called in at the circle today and found they've cut all the trees down.!
The moor and the circle look very different, not sure i like it, though it is nice to know the circle wont suffer from root damage now.
Park at the car park at Redmires Plantation SK269858. From here follow the path for about 300m up the bank thru' the trees onto the moor, then turn off away from the wall on your left. Bash thru' the heather for 100m or so and have a good look round, it's small and tricky to spot. Probably best seen in winter.
What a strange strange place, i can't make head nor tail of this jumble of boulder.
I spent over an hour wandering around scratching my head, hmmming and arrring.
I'm no ancient fort expert, which would have been evident had you been there with me, still scratching my head now.
Great place for a fort though, if that's what it was.
*Scratches head some more*
From Redmires Road, follow the path on the opposite side of the road from the reservoirs that follows the "conduit": a man-made drainage ditch that empties into the upper reservoir and marked on the map at SK 26018578. You'll need to follow this for about 1km till you come to a junction with a path crossing a small bridge on your left, and a path to your right onto the moor. You need to take the latter for about 200 metres downhill. The standing stone is roughly 100 metres onto the moor in a NNE direction.
Standing around 1.2 metres high, surrounded by mature heather and aligned roughly North / South I noticed this particular stone one day whilst making my way back from the Reddicar Clough / Ash Cabin Cist and heading towards the Headstone (.5km NNW), there's no history i know of as i can't find reference to it anywhere but the weathering on it's top certainly suggests it's been stood for a very long period and probably back in to prehistory.
