Notes

A Bronze Age stone circle with central burial cairn located on gently shelving land at the eastern edge of Eyam Moor. The stone circle consists of six surviving stones arranged in a ring measuring 13 metres by 12.5 metres. Four of the stones stand upright, the other two are now fallen. The stones range between 0.25 metres and 1.1 metre in height. It is recorded that there were nine stones in the ring during the 19th century. Within the circle of stands stands a large oval cairn orientated north-south, measuring 8.5 metres by 6 metres and standing about 0.6 metres high. The cairn has a deep trench cut along its axis although much of the original fabric still survives. The trench is likely to be the result of 18th or 19th century antiquarian excavation. Scheduled.
