Wincle Minn Standing Stones

OS Grid ref:- SJ939659

Five standing stones are situated near the village of Wincle by the Gritstone Trail long distance footpath, a popular long distance trail which runs for 35 miles from Disley to Kidsgrove, the trail is split into three stages and encompasses some of the finest scenery in Cheshire.

Three of these are understood to be prehistoric with two more recent additions. The stones line the road at irregular intervals along the ridge of Wincle Minn. Some have holes drilled in them indicating that they might once have been gate posts marking the line of a fence which no longer exists.

The stones are located at the western edge of Minn End Lane. There are superb views from the site over the Peak District and to the west the Cheshire Plain, Bosley Cloud and Croker Hill are visible.

The stones are best accessed on foot along Minn End Lane which follows the spine which separates Bosley Minn from Wincle Minn.
