A stone circle thing on Big Moor in Derbyshire.
Don't really know any more - could be stone age, could be iron age, or could be something the tourist board knocked up in the eighties.
Thanks for looking
the experts say bronze age ..blah ,looks like an old sheep pen Michael ,a simple but very pleasing landscape
Magic light and colours too And the sky is perfect.
Thanks for having a look.
I was perhaps being a bit flippant with my description - there were three cremations excavated from the circle that were carbon dated to the Bronze Age (gold star for Ollie) - but what's there now was restored in the eighties.
Lovely light with a subtle lead in to the frame. I have a strange urge to step into the ring of stones, listening to Kajagoogoo an my walkman.
As urges go that is pretty strange, though now you mention it I can sort of see a circle full of druids shaking a shoe to 'too shy shy'.
Now there's a thought.
LOL....the comments alone are worth a vote! It shows I should look around more, I didn't even know this existed
Martin, there are a few in the vicinity. Do a search for 'Barbrook Stone Circles Big Moor' (this is Barbrook II) and you'll find them. Perhaps not ever so photogenic (as I seem to have demonstrated here) but easy to get to and worth a look.
