|Description ||The King’s Stone, near Nine Ladies, Stanton Moor, Derbyshire
A single standing stone known as the King’s Stone or Fiddler’s Chair lies approximately 40m to the south-west of the Nine Ladies. Now leaning slightly, the King’s Stone is approximately 0.9m in height and has suffered at the hands of a graffiti ‘artist’. Local legend says that the circle was formed when nine ladies were turned to stone, punished for dancing on the Sabbath, and that the King’s Stone was their fiddler.
