On Stanton Moor is a circle of small stones, which according to legend are petrified dancers. The women had been celebrating a wedding in the village one Saturday, and after the ceremony a mysterious fiddler offered to play for them on the edge of the moor while they continued to dance. The fiddler was so hypnotically gifted that the ladies were carried away in their enjoyment – to the extent that they failed to notice when midnight arrived. They were duly punished for dancing on the Sabbath.
Some distance from the circle is another stone, called the king stone or the fiddler – the petrified ghost of the musician.
