The StarDisc is a spectacular 21st century stone circle created by renowned visual artist Aidan Shingler. A place perfect for astronomy, for events, weddings and concerts, the Star Disc has become a real focus for the town.
From its setting high above the town, it commands stunning views over Wirksworth and the Ecclesbourne Valley. A star chart, carved into black granite and inscribed with the constellations, is surrounded by 12 silver granite seats representing the months of the year. After dark, the star chart, which spans 12m, is illuminated by low level lighting, powered by our own star the Sun.
