The focus of many local legends, Mitchell's Fold is a Bronze Age stone circle set in dramatic moorland on Stapeley Hill. It once consisted of some 30 stones, 15 of which are still visible.

BEFORE YOU GO
Parking: A parking area is available at the end of the track. Cars are not permitted beyond the cattle grid onto the moorland.

How to Find It: The stone circle can be found by following the track from the car park, north east over the brow of the hill for 300 metres.

Dogs: Livestock may be grazing in the area close to the stones, please keep dogs on leads.

Please Be Aware: Stapeley Hill can have changeable weather conditions so come prepared with suitable clothing as the site is remote and very exposed.

PLAN A GREAT DAY OUT
Mitchell's Fold Stone Circle is located on Stapeley Hill, a dramatic location that makes a great place for a bracing walk across the moorland.

The unforgettably picturesque Stokesay Castle is about 13 miles away. It is the finest and best-preserved medieval fortified manor house in England. An audio tour helps you to imagine Stokesay as a centre of medieval life, and the tearoom serves a delicious range of light savoury snacks, homemade cakes and cream teas.
