Peter's Stone

Natural Rock Feature


Named after St Peter's in Rome; the domed top of the outcrop similar in shape to that of the church there.
A handaxe was discovered in the scree close-by and was perhaps associated with a barrow that is speculated to have been located in this area.
It was also the location of the Peak's last gibbeting in 1815.
