NINE LADIES STONE CIRCLE AND THE KINGS STONE

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  STANTON II, NINE LADIES STONE CIRCLE
DESCRIPTION + /

The Nine Ladies is a Bronze Age embanked stone circle within a ring cairn located on Stanton Moor, with a single standing stone known as the King's Stone 40 metres to its south-west. These two features appear to be contemporary with a wider Bronze Age funerary landscape on the moor and are probably part of the complex. A possible recumbent tenth stone visible appears much smaller than the other nine and may not be part of the original circle. The site is in the care of English Heritage.
