'Isolated on the Derbyshire moors at Arbour Lowe, near Bakewell, over 40 recumbent pieces of limestone lie in a circular pattern within a (2000+BC) prehistoric earthenwork.' This powerful poem creates the isolation and desolation of pre-historic religious rituals. There is a strange atmosphere in the place which the poet manages to convey. Past, present and future mingle in this eerie evocation which makes the reader aware of the haunted and haunting qualities of this isolated spot.
