Seven Stones of Hordron Edge (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

Another visit today, probably my tenth, maybe 15th as it's only a short drive for me, but once again....wow.
I never tire of this place with it's expansive views through 360 degrees with backdrops including Stanedge Edge, Ladybower Tor with it's rock art, the dramatic Win and Lose hills and in the far distance Kinder scout. Get there before 3pm and there's even a bloody sarnie caravan, what more could anyone want ?

Wincobank (Hillfort) — News

Great news.


"Brilliant news! We have just been notified that the Planning Inspector has dismissed Investates appeal to build houses on the historic Wincobank Hill. The land will remain green open space and an important part of the setting for the iron age hill fort which is a scheduled ancient monument.
A big 'thank you' to all of you who signed the petition, it really did make a difference."

Wincobank (Hillfort) — News

They're back.


We appeal to the Planning Inspectorate to safeguard our national heritage by upholding the decision of Sheffield City Council to refuse planning permission to build on the line of an ancient monument known as 'The Roman Ridge'. Planning Inspectorate Reference: APP/J4423/A/12/2180681/NWF.

This 27km ancient earthwork, not yet fully understood or dated, runs along the side of the Scheduled Iron Age Hill Fort at Wincobank. As a Celtic defensive frontier against both the early Roman invaders and the later Saxons, it has the same historic value as Hadrian‘s Wall and Offa’s Dyke. It is a monument of local and national significance.
