  • Summiteer says...
  • Climbed this in 1979, as part of linear walk from Buxton to Chapel-en-le-Frith, via Axe Edge and Burbage Edge. Solomon's Temple is a Victorian folly, constructed in 1894 for the Duke of Devonshire. It replaced an earlier tower built by Solomon Mycock, a Buxton Publican, in 1840. Inside there is a staircase to the top.
