No path to the stone but it's easy enough to find once you see the dry stone wall. Christianised in medieval times when it was used as a boundary marker.
To say how tricky the large circle of Offerton Moor Westcan be to find when you're right next to's quite easy to pick out over the wooded valley.

A Coppy Of Ye Boundaries Of Abney Lordship 12 Edward II (1317)

".....and so to ye slack att Highlow Head and so straight over the moore to a round hill of knowle called Berching Hatt from thence to Standing Stone."

I think Berching Hatt refers to the once large cairn at SK211 802, still on the parish boundary. Highlow Bank Cairn.
