This is a very interesting place, there are carved steps and caves all over the place, even seats carved into the stone, be careful though, there are some steep drops, and if you have children, keep hold of their hands

If you are in the area, then check this place out, park up out the pub and walk around the back of the building and you will see the start of a trail leading up to the rocks. Really amazing bit of history to explore, wont spoil it for everyone, but you need to be able bodied and like heights.

Great views, loads of easy climbing. If you don't fancy a picnic but a drink instead The Red Lion in Birchover is a great place for a drink and also food, children are welcome.

Anyway, this is a most kooky place, and you get to it by a pathwya behind the Druid Inn. A vicar, in the 1700s, thought to make the natural rock formations more exciting, and set to,... More

7 mile hike around Birchover to the 9 Ladies... then a pit stop at the Druids Inn. Take a map of the area and a compass...worth a visit.

It took me and my grandson 3 visit to find the cave and to be honest we were a little disappointed as we had seen the cave on our first visit but hadn't realised as we were so unimpressed by it. Although we did have great fun exploring the area looking for it.

You wouldn't even know these are here from the road, but if you walk around the back of the Druids Inn, there are a tiny set of stairs leading you up into the hills and to the caves. We were the only people around at all that morning, which really made it even more enjoyable and added to the atmosphere.... More

We did a 3 hour walk called Sacred Stanton Moor starting at Birchover and it included the Druids cave and Nine Ladies stone circle, lovely walk.

Not a good place to take children or if you have walking climbing disabilities but if you want peace and tranquillity this is ideal
