  • Summiteer says...
  • First visited this in 1979. Probably one of the very few hills in the Peak District, that can actually claim to be a 'Peak'. But then the Peak District wasn't actually named because of it's hills, but because of the Anglo-Saxon tribe, the Pecsaetan or Peaklanders, who lived there from the 6th Century.
