The Three Men of Gardoms



I do not know the origin of the "Three Men", but it is worth pointing out that it is only yards away from the junction of 4 early 19th century walls made of stones that look to me identical to the stones that make up the Three Men. A simple answer to their origin might be that they are the remains of the material dumps the wall builders must have had. It would certainly be remarkable if the wall builders had ignored 3 piles of walling stones and hauled similar material up from the quarries. There are some memorials to lost travellers in the Peak District, but the others are inscriptions. Posted by ferox

They are modern replacements. I've been told that the sones have been removed several times but everyone who goes up there replace them. I think they look nice and provide good photography for the hills behind
