|Description ||Barbrook III Stone Circle, Big Moor, Derbyshire
Located to the north-east of Barbrook stream and reservoir, Barbrook III is very difficult to make out, as most of the stones are almost completely overgrown by the moorland grass and partially covered in peat.
The stones, mostly leaning or collapsed, stand in a bank approximately 26m by 23.5m in diameter, making it one of the largest circles in the Peak District. The bank is broken by three gaps, with one to the east-north-east most noticeable which may have been the original entrance.
