OK so this ring cairn is hard to find and when you do..... it's a bit of a let down, just a ring of slightly higher than the rest heather. But the views are outrageous. With Win Hill, framed by Lose Hill and Mam Tor in the west and the Derwent Valley and Crook Hill to the north.
If there were stones remaining would certainly be one the Peaks best sites.

Hard to find, after a wade thru' the heather along Bamford Edge. The circle has no remaing stones, a well preserved bank but averaging only 1ft in height, helping to hide it in the heather. stubob Posted by stubob
