Many people go to the Peak District for its beautiful landscapes – but did you know it’s also filled to the brim with fascinating historical events? Here’s seven places you can visit to learn more about the Peak District’s past.
5. The Old House Museum
Saved from demolition during the 1950s, The Old House Museum may not be the most historically significant building in the Peak District, but it certainly contains plenty of items that are. It's seen plenty of different incarnations - from a tax collector's house to accommodation for mill workers, it now serves as one of the main history hubs in the Peaks.
6. Solomon's Temple
This peculiar building in Buxton, also known as Grinlow Tower, contains nothing but a staircase. It was built in 1896, after the previous building that once stood there (built by Solomon Mycock, hence the name) had become little more than a pile of detritus. From the top, you'll be able to witness some stunning views across the Peak District.
7. Arbor Low
At a first glance, Arbor Low may not look like much, it is what is known as a Henge monument - as such, it's almost definitely the oldest man-made landmark on this list by a considerable distance. It's unknown when it was constructed, or who it was constructed by - perhaps you could be the one to uncover these ancient mysteries?
