|Description ||General view of Eyam Moor II stone circle. GR:SK231789. Mentioned on several occasions by antiquarians, Eyam Moor II stone circle was only rediscovered in 1983, which is rather surprising considering its close proximity to the well used footpath.This embanked stone circle is now somewhat ruined and submerged. One of the smallest sites of Derbyshire, it is approximately 8m by 7.5m in diameter with only four low stones, ranging in height between 0.15m and 0.3m, set into the bank. The circle is constructed on a gradual slope with the bank and ditch more prominent to the west and east. There is a break to the north-north-west which may originally have been an entrance and a disturbed cairn in the centre.Although lost for many years the existence of this site, along with Eyam Moor III, was known previously and was perhaps mentioned by Thomas Bateman in 1852|
