|Description ||Sainter’s Stone Circle?, near Hen Cloud, The Roaches
In addition to the so-called ‘dolmen’ in the Roaches, today known as the Bawdstone, antiquarian J.D.Sainter also mentioned a stone circle close by. After a lot of searching in the general area, we found this circle of 9 stones at GR: SK00819 61899. John Barnatt of the Peak National Park Authority visited the site recently and said that he didn’t think it was a stone circle, but could possibly be a ringcairn – only a flame thrower would tell!!
The question is, is this Sainter's circle or is his still out there waiting to be found?
|afraid not,your way off,my great grandfather obtained a handaxe and a few other articles from the bawd stone/ring area.|

|I also don't believe that this is 'Sainter's Circle' despite it fitting the locality description described in his book. This area of Hen Cloud was burned back last year in a moorland fire and when I visited the area it still didn't resemble a ring. I think it's possible to almost convince yourself that it is one, but the condition is so poor that the chances are minimal! Just have to keep looking I suppose!!|
I have only just recently got into this area of research because i believe that there are entences to the inner earth and that thus means there could be great ancient citys beneah the earth and then i came aross this on the internet, having to live in staffordshire it came to a great surprize.
The Staffordshire, England Entrance
Somewhere in Staffordshire, England, a lonely field exists in which a laborer discovered a large iron plate beneath the dirt. The "hatch" was large and oval, with an iron ring mounted on it. This entrance led into the tunnels. The field is in a valley surrounded on almost all sides by woods. The laborer was digging a trench for some purpose. The incident was reported in "A History of Staffordshire" by Dr. Plot, who wrote the book in the late 1700s. It may be possible to find the entrance if it can be ascertained exactly which valley the laborer was digging in.
Is this what you mean?

|could someone please explain that last post,next you will say jesus exsisted|
|With reference to the "A History of Staffordshire" by Dr. Plot, I have scoured the internet for details with little success, I live in Canada at the moment but will be back next Spring, I would like to research with someone to find the exact area of the dig. I am locating local churches and old council refernce papers, any offers.....
| I have Dr Plot's Natural History Of Staffordshire in my Possession.....I am very curious about 'Inner Earth' and intend to investigate further as I live in Scotland which isn't too far away. It seems totally plausible to me that there is underground cities.. If you can help with my investigation or would like to join the Team drop me a email. Thanks, Moof|
| Moof, I am interested in Dr Plot's book and what was uncovered in this area. Could you mail me with whatever you have found out about this? Thanks! |
|The Searcher |
| Hi Moof, I am also interested in the staffordshire hatch, i have done alot of research into ancient lost civilisations, submerged cities and more recently underground cities to. I have been trying to find information on the laborer who had found this hatch to try and find more information on him and his family line maybe the tales of the hatces location have been passed down through the family. A long shot i know but i dont see any other way of finding the rough location of this hatch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.|
| The searcher and Moof. If you guys have any more information on this hatch, please mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. |
Sounds real interesting!!
| Hello, I'm looking to go on a search of the hatch in the next couple of months and if anyone has and more info on its rough position I would be grateful there is 4 of us going on a long weekend to see what we can find and we have a couple of locations that have been suggested but if anymore has done more reearch and wouldn't mind sharing there info|
| Try the bottom of my garden, the fairies will direct you from there.|
| The original passage in the book doesn't refer to an iron plate but to a large stone with an iron ring set in it. It is obviously fiction, just by reading the account you can tell it is not a narrative of an actual event, despite what the author may say.|
