Stanton Moor South
Between Stanton-in-the-Peak and Birchover
OS Grid Reference SK 2465 6291
Of all the sites on Stanton Moor this one is probably the hardest to spot being very overgrown, though once you've located it the bank is quite obvious, the preservation is comparable with Stanton Moor north.
Located right besides the path to your left if you approach from the direction of the Nine Ladies and Stanton Moor central and around 300 metres distant from the latter.
There's no landmark to drop you on this site so you need to keep your eyes peeled, though if you reach the large robbed cairn by where the paths intersect you've come too far.
There are numerous stones visible within the bank and the interior and these are quite obvious, when you've found it it'll be quite obvious and you'll wonder how you could have missed it. !
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 and Stanton Moor central to your right then around 200 metres further along the path start looking for the bank to your left.
