10 of us and 3 dogs enjoyed the walk up to Stanton Moor. Cold but dry and great views helped. We managed to get 9 females ( if you count two of the dogs) to the Nine Ladies Stone Circle,Bronze Age, and after half an hour without Andy ( never go for a wee…) met up with him again. My fault as this was my first walk I hadnt reccied and went slightly off route, Andy went the correct way….on his own). The Kings Stone seemed like a very puny lone male- the carved words were debated and apparently say ‘billstumps’ from the 19th Century. Also eyed up hand holds on Earl Tower, and some of us topped out on Cat Stone and Cork Stone. At the end some went round the outlet at Rowsley, and David and I did a few more miles and got back to the car with only 5 mins of rain. Look forward to many more happy sunny walks!
