The ring stands at 300 m O.D., on level ground on Hordron Edge, 2 miles NNE of Bamford and \\ miles NE of Castleton.

It is unusual for a Peak District ring inasmuch as it has no bank or central burial mound. Ten standing stones of local millstone grit remain of a ring which may have consisted of up to 26 stones. It is about 54 ft (16.5 m) in diameter. There are many fallen stones on its circumference.
