Ringstone Edge

Ringstone Edge was an ancient circle of monoliths from the Megalithic period. Its significance was such that the very moor on which its remains are scattered, was named after it: the Ringstone Edge Moor.  But as with many sites from our megalithic period, this old place is but a shadow of its former self.
