Gib Hill

Long Barrow


Further to Rhiannon's notes below the name Gib Hill refers to the local story of the barrow once being a gibbet site, although the name 'gib' is an olde english word for mound.
On the other hand the name Bunkers Hill, a name given to a number of features here in the Peak that includes hills, a plantation and a rock shelter, comes from the famous victory or is it defeat never too sure which and we did loose in the end, for the British in the American war of independence at Bunkers Hill.
