Overlooked by Stanage Edge, the Seven Stones of Hordron boast some of the best views in the Peak District. The circle actually consists of nine standing millstone grit stones and one recumbent stone, in a ring about 16m in diameter. In actual fact, counting all the smaller stones on site, there are twenty-three in total. However archaeological evidence has revealed that originally there may have been between sixteen and twenty stones.
Unlike most of the other circles in the Peak District, Hordron Edge is a free-standing circle having no embankment. However, all the stones are typically Derbyshire in style, all being less than a metre in height. Again the largest stone stands to the south-west, but here it is only marginally taller than the others. Most of the stones show signs of weathering.
The Seven Stones of Hordron also witnessed tampering by ‘persons unknown’ in the early 1990s. In 1992 one of the stones, which had previously been buried was re-erected.

Logs with comments footysphere: Tried to find this Stone Circle yesterday by dropping down off Stanage Edge & then tabbing for miles across open moorland. Didn't manage to find it so came back today for another go. Parked up at Cut ...
bolshieboris: Not a long walk, but very steep climb before about 1/2 mile on the flat, a longer walk from the big layby on the A57 but not as arduous.
I thought you might find this short video I've recently produced of Hordron Edge stone circle in the Peak District of interest. I managed to capture some nice night timelapse of the circle and it's stones too. It's free to share or embed.
I believe the 2 grid references say the same thing, but in a different way. The portal uses a decimalised degrees version, whereas your satnav is displaying the degrees/decimalised minutes style. It is a little confusing because there are 60 minutes to convert into decimal, so 60 becomes 1, and not 0.6. Therefore 53deg/22.687 decimal minutes is 53.37762 decimal degrees.
You may be able to change your satnav settings to different styles of displaying the grid references, if you want to. Should be an option in the menu somewhere.
According to The Countryside Agency's provisional 'right to roam' map Hordron Edge will be covered by the land designation 'Open Countryside' which will mean that access will no longer be barred. However this new right is not likely to commence until 2005.

Nice one! I was up with 2 mates on the night of 20/12/04. Right to roam? Our right to access our history, our heritage and our sacred sites. Very late, very dark, and very atmospheric. The frost/light snow meant that as our eyes became accustomed to the dark we didn't need artificial light. Could see the outline of the snake valley and what are those strgange stones poiting down the valley close to the Hordron Edge circle. Large triangular stone on its end. Wowzer.
Solstice and seasonal greetings! Right to roam where we like, and celebrate what we like.
