Lord's Seat (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

Walking West out along the ridge from the Mam Nick road, the path rises after just over 1km to the Lord's Seat barrow. Stick to the path on the crest of the ridge for the best views - Edale to your right, Mam Tor behind, Windy Knoll to your left and the barrow itself looming up ahead. Well worth the effort.

Carlin Stone (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

This huge stone stands just a field away from the Backhill of Drachlaw circle. Like those stones it has large veins of white quartz running through it, making a thick stripe around the bulk of the rock. Rather than being placed as an outlier to the neighbouring circle it is suggested that the Carlin Stone could itself have been the recumbent of a circle, although the sheer size makes this seem unlikely. There have, however, been Bronze age finds around the stone which would seem to back up the RSC idea.

Carlin Stone (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Folklore

"Carlin" is a corruption of "Cailleach" or witch; The Witches Stone.
