The Peak District is named not after the hills but after the tribe "Pecsaetans" who lived in the area, the name roughly means 'Hill dwellers'. stubob Posted by stubob

I read somewhere that Peak district took itss name from the Appenine mountain range and the peoples got their name from that

Anyone know any better?
