'Nine Ladies' is a Bronze Age stone circle located on Stanton Moor, the site is owned by English Heritage.
Legend has it that nine ladies were turned to stone for dancing on the sabbath and that the King Stone was the fiddler. In fact, the stones are part of an embanked stone circle built around 4000 years ago.
At the Nine Ladies Stone Circle, rituals and ceremonies took place concerned with living and working, life and death. Some may have been everyday, others would have been more special, concerned perhaps with the seasons and fertility.
