|Description ||General view of Eyam Moor III stone circle. GR:SK232788. Eyam Moor III is quite unusual in that it is one of only five surviving free-standing stone circles in the Peak District. The circle itself is approximately 13m by 12.5m in diameter. There are six stones in total, two of which are recumbent. The stones are of the typical Derbyshire height (up to 0.75m) although the collapsed ones would almost certainly have been taller, perhaps over a metre when standing.In the middle there is a dumbbell-shaped cairn structure, in a north-south alignment, with a trench cut through the centre. The inside has been excavated out to reveal patches of the cairnís internal stone structure.|
