Stanton Moor was one of the first places I went walking in the Peak District.  I was determined to find the perfect light, one misty summer's morning at around 05:00.  I had not realised quite how astonishingly beautiful it would be.  On my numerous subsequent visits I came to realise that in almost any light this was one of the most beautiful places in the world.  It quickly became my first port of call when I was bored, tired, stressed or just needing some time to think.

On a practical note it offers a wide range of routes depending on your level of fitness or available time, from a gentle stroll on an almost level course to the Nine Sisters' Stone Circle or further afield to Stanton itself or through the woods to the bluebell fields.  The views from almost any point in the walk are spectacular.
