|Description ||Robin Hoods Stride.On the SE corner behind the chimney. Be careful if it's wet......or you suffer from vertigo.|
|The other day whilst looking at John Barnatt's plan in the Derbyshire Archaological Journal (1982) it suddenly occured to me that this design looks uncannily similar to the diamond ring effect seen seconds before a total eclipse of the sun (Barnatt's plan shows a small circle on the larger outer rim - where the leaves and puddle of water are here). This is very interesting considering the Stride's association with the moon.|
|What is the Stride's association with the moon Vicky?|
|The Mid-summer full moon would have at one time been seen between the pillars of the Stride, viewed from the circle.....
|y is it called Robin Hood's Stride? and where is it?|
|Click on the yellow highlighted name for more information.|
|As the moon is particularly low on the horizon later this year, does that mean that viewing the effect from Nine Stones Close, as it passes over Robin Hood's Stride, would be extra special - or would the moon be lower than the Stride's rocky summit? |
| Was here on Saturday, and still can't track this down exactly. Fantastic place though. First visited 13 years ago, and like to get back sometime each year.|
| Will give this another looking for this weekend!|
