During our walk yesterday we passed the Nine Ladies on Stanton Moor.
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.
This was the first time for many years that I've been able to photograph the stones. Usually there is someone sitting on one of them or kids playing around them. Yesterday the place was deserted. One advantage of winter walking I suppose.
