Shillito Wood / Ramsley Moor / Big Moor Circular (including diversion to Swine Sty) - Derbyshire - 22/04/17 - 7 Miles - Helen (Molly)

A choice of routes.
And we are off.

Plenty of these poetry stones about to examine.

So anyway on Ramsley and Big Moors there are a whole host of Cairns, Burial Chambers, and this impressive Stone Circle to discover (we also went off on a diversion to find Swine Sty, which I forgot to photograph).
