SK2463 : Nine Ladies

near to Stanton in Peak, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Nine Ladies
Nine Ladies
There are nine upright stones, each of local millstone grit, each less than a metre high sat in clearing in a modern wood planted on Stanton Moor. They sit in a rough circle with a gap at the south side of the circle where no stone-hole has been found. However, an additional stone, lying flat rather than upright, was discovered after being exposed as a cropmark in the dry weather of 1976. It is now visible. The circle is built on an embankment which levelled the local terrain. The small "King Stone" lies forty metres from the circle to the west-south-west and is clearly visible from it.

The Nine Ladies were among the 28 archetypal monuments in England and Wales included in General Pitt-Riversí Schedule to the first Ancient Monuments Protection Act, which became law in 1882. It was taken into state care the following year.
