Stanton Moor & Nine Ladies Stone Circle - Group Walk

About

The walk starts from the small village of Rowsley, located where the River Wye meets the River Derwent. Rowsley is home to the fascinating Caudwell's Mill which still runs most days. We pass by the back of the mill, and head through fields below the beech wood-topped Peak Tor which was home to an early Celtic settlement and still has the remains of a dry moat. We soon head up fairly steeply towards some lovely woods and then onto Stanton Moor. The site is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and the sandstone moor is home to many interesting features for us to visit including the famous bronze age Nine Ladies Stone Circle, the Reform or "Earl Grey" Tower, and the Cork Stone. We then head down to the small village of Birchover, which we wind our way around, before returning via another route through Stanton Moor before heading back down to Rowsley. The walk is mostly on good tracks and footpaths with one fairly steep hill up to Stanton Moor from Rowsley, a climb of about 200 m (600 ft). At any time of year, there could be some muddy sections.
