New Hagg (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

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.

Ash Cabin Flat (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

Not convinced at all this stone is of any significance, there are many naturally standing stones in the area and most are much more convincing than this one. megadread Posted by megadread

Long Cist — Fieldnotes

What a bugger to find, well worth the effort though and once there you can totally understand why it is where it is.
There are no paths leading to it, the only route is to trudge through the heather.
Excellent site.
