I had been walking for miles on Bordley moor when I came across this little circle of stones. Curiously arranged into shape by man, the tallest stone is about 4 ft. high and the whole circle is on a slightly raised embankment. I think it may be a prehistoric burial, it is near a Iron Age settlement which is unexcavated (most here are).
I have been unable to discover any reference to it anywhere, but one of my archaeo friends also thinks it could be a simple burial site.
And then I got to thinking about who might lying be under there. Who would be lucky enough to be buried on this beautiful moor with magnificent views over the Dales.
And I just wish that when my time is up someone will put my ashes on a wind swept moor somewhere, with beautiful views and the red kite and curlew for company – rather than be buried in some dry cemetery with manicured lawns and artificial headstones…
