A small early Bronze Age stone circle traditionally believed to depict nine ladies turned to stone as a penalty for dancing on Sunday. It is part of a complex of prehistoric circles and standing stones on Stanton Moor.

Stanton Moor is home to the famous Nine Ladies Stone Circle. Believed to date back to Bronze Age times, and a place where ceremonies one took place, possibly of a religious nature. The information board there tells the entertaining story as to how the stone circle got its name. Other fascinating…

“Speedwell Cavern – Visited by Boat & Peak Cavern – “The Devil’s Arse!” Take an incredible Underground Journey by Boat and enter the inner world of the underground cave system in the heart of the Peak District National Park and absorb the atmosphere as a watery silence echoes all around you. Set at the foot of the spectacular Winnats Pass, high above the village of Castleton, Speedwell Cavern takes you on an incredible underground boat journey. Descend the 106 steps from the almost hidden cave entrance to the landing stage of an underground canal where you step on to your tour guides' boat. From here you glide quietly through the workings of a 200 year old lead mine. Picture in your mind what it must have been like to carve out these tunnels using only the most primitive tools as your guide recounts the story of the mine which opens into a network of natural caverns and underground rivers. At the Halfway House the canal tunnel splits into two to allow oncoming boats to pass as you make your way 200 metres below the surface of the hill before entering a magnificent cathedral-like cavern containing the awesome Bottomless Pit - a huge subterranean lake. Unravel the mysteries of the Devil’s Arse and step into the unique world of Peak Cavern. Unusual rock formations, the eerie sound of running water and echoes of a bygone age await you. Set in the middle of the picturesque Peak District village of Castleton, the approach to Peak Cavern is awe inspiring. Deep into the cliffs is the Cavern’s imposing entrance chamber, within which you will see the remains of an ancient village where a whole community lived and worked making ropes for the local lead mines for more than 400 years. Deeper into the Cavern you pass through Lumbago walk and enter the Great Cave, see a perpetual cascade of water at Roger Rains’ House, pass through Pluto’s Dining Room into the Devil’s Cellar and hear the source of the river Styx. Guided tours, including traditional ropemaking demonstrations, last 1 hour. They are fairly undemanding and are suitable for all ages.”

“Spectacular views of Hope Valley and Cave Dale from the top. Very steep climb. The castle was founded sometime around 1066-1086. Mam Tor is but two kilometres away. ”
