Stanton Moor central
Between Stanton-in-the-Peak and Birchover
OS Grid Reference SK 2483 6327
Located around 150 metres South of The Nine Ladies and despite being covered in heather and gorse the Bank can still easily be seen as can the remnants of the central cairn, there are also several stones that can be seen in the bank, well worth a visit.
From Bakewell take the A6 Matlock road, follow this till just past the signs for Haddon Hall where you take a right, the first major junction the B5056 Youlgreave, then after about 1km take the first left over the bridge. You then need the first left you come to signposted Stanton-in-the-Peak.
Follow the road up through the village, pass the Flying Childers pub to your right then ignoring Pilhough lane to your left, you then need the next left turn onto Lees road, despite there being a small sign on a wall outside the last house before it,(usually obscured by a parked car) it's easily missed as it almost looks like the driveway to a farm so be on the look out as you approach the winding section near the top of the village, if you miss it and end up heading out into the countryside again turn around and it's the first really sharp right turn on the blind bend.
Follow Lees road through the small wood and for around 500 metres where by the quarry entrance you'll see a small parking area and a signpost and access point for the moor, park here.
Follow the obvious path, it'll take you through 4 gates to the information board, from there carry on till you pass The Nine Ladies to your right, from here the circle of Stanton Moor Central is around 150 metres further up the path to your right, theres a narrow but well worn path that leads into it, once your upon it you can't miss it.
A section of the bank.
