Excellent site. Good to see the Turning Stone and Robin Hood's Mark get a mention as well as Bradley Tor Rocking Stone.
Thanks Nick, we do find ourselves in strange places. :)
Thanks for putting this site up, nice stuff, I'll be back.
Glad you like it "Thanks", makes the leg miles worthwhile. :)
What a fantastic resource! The inclusion of little known sites coupled with an extraordinary attention to detail guarantees many return visits. Many thanks & congratulations on a great work!
Thank you Phil.
Love the site but you spelled Cresswell Crags wrong, it's actually Creswell with just one s, I live a couple of minutes walk from there. At the moment there is a fight to stop a biogas plant using waste from farms which will create quite a smell from being built in close proximity to Creswell Crags.
Also like to add that I met my husband up at the nine ladies stone circle 9 years ago.
Thanks for the kind comments people, and Kaz, i've edited it, just for you. : )
I lead guided walks in the Peak District and your website is an excellent resource for me to use to create more interesting & informative walks. I'm now going to places I never knew existed. Well done! Keep up the good work.
Thanks Bob, and glad the site is of use to you.
I'm planning a few walks - well, a lot of walks I hope - round Derbyshire for summer. Your site has endless days set out for me. Great stuff here so thanks for doing all hard work. All I have to do is get out the map and join the dots!
Glad you like it Grumps, enjoy your walks !
A very well constructed and informative website - well done.
Thanks Jonathan, we do appreciate peoples comments. :)
In recent months I have become very interested in ancient sites in the Peak District and your enthusiastic website has added to my knowledge of them. Thank you so much. You may find some useful pictures in my "geograph" portfolio which I have directed you to in "Website".
(Technical point - re people's comments - why are they kind of hidden in the deep wine coloured background?)
Hi Neil, Thanks for the comment.
I'm not sure what's wrong with the text colour, it should be white, and was last time i checked in.
I'll have a look in the settings to see if i can rectify it.
What a wonderful website. I live in the peaks and proud of them, I walk the peaks and DRAG all my friends (mainly From London) around and then I download small clips and photos I have taken and put them together for their memory box. If you don’t mind I will add yours clip to my list. Did I miss Hermits cave on your website.
Thanks Robert. We haven't included Hermits Cave as i've no evidence of it'suse in pre-history.
a pretty cpmprehensive site..well done guys. dean x
A big sigh ............................... with appreciation from an expat. from Buxton, Derbyshire. With I am sure a pecsaetan heritage.
An appreciation from an expat of Derbyshire living in Queensland, Australia.
Ahhh, you're most welcome Dorothy, were just happy people are enjoying the site. :)
Well done guys, a welcome addition to knowledge of our Peak District history & heritage which is now available on the www!
Check out my Derbyshire site at www.aboutderbyshire.co.uk
Thanks Tom, and i'll go have a look at your site now !
I only came across this website from a link posted on Sheffield Forum. Found the site to be an excellent educational resource from which I can further my limited knowledge of ancient sites in and around the Peak District.
I found this website from a link on SheffieldForum. I look forward to looking at it again in more detail when I have some free time, in view of doing some exploring in the Peak District.
Another one from Sheffield Forum-Morts!
Absolutely brilliant. A lot of hard work has gone into this and your enthusiasm is an absolute credit. It makes exploring the countryside even more worthwhile.
Glad you like it Nick.
Excellent site I've visited for the first time today. Level of information is superb. Congratulations on the hard work and the availability of it. Others could take a lesson from you. I'll be a frequent visitor.
Regards to you and all visitors
Thanks Mike. Comments like this make the work myself and Stu have done worthwhile. Not that we don't enjoy it anyway. :)
Excellent site! I've been to a fair few of the places mentioned, but I'm always looking for new places to explore. Bookmarked for future reference.
Just heard the awful news and wanted to pass on my best.
Hope you're alright Geoff, sorry I don't have your proper email anymore as my laptop died a while ago.
All the best to you and yours
We lost a real treasure mate. Thanks for taking the rime to post.
It is always tragic when someone making a difference is taken so early. I've used Stubob's wisdom to check out what the Peaks have to offer, being one of those with the intelligence to see when a gift horse is giving me pearls of wisdom. Let's hope many others embrace the legacy of what you are doing here.
Should have done this a wee while back. All the best to Stu's family and yourself Geoff.
This site seems a fitting testament to Stu and his discoveries. Keep it up!
Hi, probably an odd request, but maybe not. I am an avid hillwalker (in Eastern Ireland) and I love especially to visit the hilltop Megalithic cairns which abound the area. Now, Ireland has many references to 'callaigh' with relationship to the monuments. My thoughts are that these stories date way further back than 'Hags' and 'witches', as the gaelic name for a hag / witch is Cailleach, singular of callaigh. In ancient gaelic the name for an owl is Cailleach na h-oiche -- spirit of the night. I hope you are not finding this too odd -- The old tales tell of the cairns being 'created' by Caillaigh flying over head and dropping stones from their aprons, thus creating the cairns (hilltop mounds, normally covering a short passage chamber). My thoughts however are that this is a (relatively) modern version of a roosting owl dropping pellets in favourite roosting places. Now barns obviously did not exist at this time, so would owls be likely to roost on such hilltop enclosures, and even within them, where there would be shelter -- the narrow entrances would probably restrict human activity, once the passages were complete, the capstone placed on top, and the cairn constructed -- I believe they would have been open, to allow the sun / moonlight penetrate the chambers. You help would be appreciated, as you can see, my request is somewhat 'historical', I have no need to see these wonderful creatures, and, as an avid photographer of small flowers, bees and butterflies,deer, grouse, fox,etc. I most certainly would not cause any harm to any species, endangered, or not.
Hi there, I'd like to contact you to report possible new rock art I've discovered in Derbyshire...but alas your e-mail acct is not recognised, my e-mails are sent back, invalid e-mail/Hotmail acct??!!

Hi, is there anyone with an interest in your group that has an interest in the battle of Brunanburh as I have located the battle site in your area. I would be willing to show my findings to anyone who has and I'm hoping to have it confirmed by battlefield experts in the future. Thanks, Andy.
