Earlier this year about April when we had a spell of warm weather. Myself and my other half took a trip out to Derbyshire one Sunday for a picnic in the Peak District. We decided to visit Stanton Moor where the Nine Ladies stone circle is located, we have been before and it is a pictureque and popular tourist stop off. We got lost in the car as it was some years since our last visit and ended parking on a lane and walking in the general direction of the moor through a footpath near some sort of electrical sub station. The path winded through a rather dark and dank wooded area and there was a noticable absence of bird song, which gave the place a sort of oppressive atmosphere. Eventually we came through a gate and onto the moor and could see the stone circle. There were plenty of people about as we walked arround it and it was a pleasant sunny day. Within about ten minutes I started to feel a bit queasy and light headed but thought nothing too much of it. I walked over to a clearing where someone had at some time had a camp fire and there was a small statue of a Budha set on the ground, candles and lots of strange hangings made from twiggs, leaves and bird feathers hung from a tree. A thought crossed my mind that this place that is ancient and obviously has been / or is sacred to some people had been defiled in some way. At that point I was overcome by a terrible feeling of dread and had to cling to the nearest tree to stay standing. I felt an intense feeling of being drained of all my energy and started to shake all over uncontrollably. I called to my other half to come over who was over the other side of the cirlce and said for him to get me away from here right now! He had to physically hold me up as I my legs had gone to jelly. As we moved away from the site I began to feel better by degrees and by the time I was at my car apart from being a bit shaken still, I was my normal self again. I was left with a feeling of sadness about the place and wondered if anyone else had experienced any overpowering feelings at this particular site? I am quite a sensitive person when it comes to relating to people and their emotions, but this was the firts time a place has ever had such a strange effect on me.
