Summary : Stone circle or barrow
More information : A "stone circle" stands 1,050 ft above sea level on the hillside at Cadster, near Whaley Bridge, but in Chapel-en-le-Frith parish. Its vallum has an elliptical diameter, varying from 35-40ft with entrances north-north-east and south-west.
The stones are of the same arrangment and size as those of "The Nine
Ladies". [SK 26 SW15] and the diameter of their circle varies from 30ft to 33ft 6ins The centre is nearly level, but some large stones below the turf may have supported a monolith, prehaps the stone, measuring 4ft long, 2ft 6ins wide, and 1ft deep, now lying at the foot of the vallum 90ft nearly S by W of the circle, almost prostrate, is another stone 3ft 6ins high by 2ft 6ins. 2ft.

A trench cut through the vallum revealed it to be revetted on both
faces and filled with loose stones. (1)

Vestiges of a small circle on the hillside above Tunstead and Cadstar
House adjoining the lane from Combs to Ferrilee were pointed out by Mr Andrew in 1910. It had then been almost obliterated by cattle, etc. but the general outline could be traced. A [trepanned] skull called 'Dickie' now at Tunstead Farm may have come from "this tumulus". (2)

[Area SK 026792] There are a number of circles visible in this field.

No trace of a barrow or stone circle seen in this area. The A.P.
markings constitute quarrying. (4)
