Barbrook One (grid reference SK27857558) is a stone circle on Ramsley Moor in the Peak District.

Description

"Barbrook No. 1" is an embanked stone circle.[1] It has one large standing stone (1 metre high) and 11 smaller stones (5 cm to 25 cm high).[1] The circle has an internal diameter of about 13 metres, and it is surrounded by a rubble bank 3 metres wide.[1]

The stone circle stands in a cairn field on Ramsley Moor. This includes "Barbrook No. 2" which is a ring cairn consisting of a rubble bank with internal diameter 13 metres.[2] It is about 200 metres to the north by northwest of Barbrook 1.[2] Altogether there are about 80 cairns on Ramsley Moor.[3] The majority are less than 6 metres in diameter.[3] Many are believed to be clearance cairns of later prehistoric date. Some of the larger cairns are likely to be Bronze Age funerary monuments.[3] The area is a designated Scheduled Ancient Monument.[4]

Two kilometres to the north is another stone circle known as "Barbrook No. 3" (or "Barbrook III").[5]
