A walk on Stanton Moor

Hello lovely peeps, a couple of days ago your webteam got let out and decided to go for a walk across Stanton Moor to the Nine Ladies Stone Circle.  Usually there is sight of at least one other human being at the site itself, which is seperated from the moor by a grove of trees. However, we saw only a couple of walkers on the moor itself, the circle was lovely and peaceful in the lunchtime December sunshine.   As y’all didn’t go with us, here are a few piccies showing the seasons turn towards the cold.  As usual, you can clicky to embiggen any of the pictures below.

Firstly, we passed the cork stone:
