Discover the Nine Ladies mysteries

WOULD-BE archaeologists and star-gazers are invited to meet the experts to explore ancient history and the night sky from a prehistoric stone circle on Sunday, December  4.

The Peak District National Park Authority is offering 60 free places for people to find out more about the mystical Nine Ladies stone circle, on Stanton Moor, both on the ground and in the night sky.

Three two-hour sessions will take place on Sunday December 4, at noon, 2pm, and 4pm, starting at the Village Hall in Stanton in Peak, near Bakewell.

The events will include a short talk on the history of the stone circle, what to look out for in the night sky in December, a planetarium session, and a 15-minute walk to the stone circle.

The 4pm session will include a look at the night sky through telescopes, weather permitting.

Booking is essential as each session is limited to only 20 people.

A waiting list will be used to prioritise bookings for future events.

Dogs are not allowed.
