This is an early Bronze Age burial ground with hundreds of cremations, seventy or so barrows and cairns. On the moor stands a small stone circle only about fifty feet in diameter that sits low on a rubble bank. Entrances sit on the north-east and south-west. There are just nine gritstone boulders, and the tallest is just a smidgen above 1 meter tall.
The old tradition is a common one; the 'Ladies' were turned into stone for dancing on a Sunday. There is a lone standing stone 27 miles to the south-west, sometimes called the King Stone, that is also sometimes called 'The Fiddler' to the Ladies' dancing. Three stones have been destroyed since the 18th century and are no longer there.
