SK2775 : Barbrook 1 stone circle; main stone

taken 7 years ago, 3 km from Curbar, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Barbrook 1 stone circle; main stone
Barbrook 1 stone circle; main stone
This is the southernmost of the circles and contains a flattened ring of twelve or thirteen small stones with only this one (to the southwest) over a metre tall. This stone seems to form an entrance with its neighbour but whether this is original or not is unclear - there is a large gap in the stones to northeast too, this could either have been an entrance or just missing stones. The ring measures between twelve and fourteen metres in diameter and is surrounded by the remains of a rubble bank about seventeen by nineteen metres at its widest point. Barbrook I stands on gently southwest sloping land on the west side of Ramsley Moor as it leads down to the stream of Bar Brook. Notes from LinkExternal link

The pixie,SK2775 : Pixie discovered on Big Moor wearing a green hat, red tunic and yellow tights is thought to be of early 21st century origins, and may be connected to a primitive form of geo-caching.
Another theory is that the sprite wards off evil spirits, often seen in these moors wearing bright waterproofs , known as cagoules, and carrying ridiculously oversize packs. The Duke of Edinburgh Award is said to be the cause of some of these sightings.
The best course of action, should you spot one of these, is "Leave well alone".
