High Badger Gate

Ancient Trackway


The high path running along the ridge from Round Hill to Ellacar Pike is an ancient trade route above Middleton and Denton Moors. This is supported by a number of boundary stones bearing 18th C 'D' and 'M' inscriptions when it was still regarded as a significant landmark. One fallen boundary stone is a reused cup marked rock and there are still a number of old milestones around these paths. Both Middleton and Denton Moors contain a number of cup and ring marked stones.

A number of paths meet at High Badger Gate, which is possibly the site of an old market.
