Arbor Low Stone Circle & Gib Hill
A bronze age stone circle enclosed by an earth embankment and ditch. Within the circle are 41 stones also in a circle, which possibly once stood but are now fallen. Set on a hill top there are spectacular views across the Peak District.
A vast and immensly impressive ruins of a palatial medieal manor house arranged round a pair of courtyards with a huge Great Hall and a 22m High Tower. It was built in the 1440's and later was the home of Bess of Hardwick's husband, the Earl of Shrewsbury, who imprisoned Mary Queen of Scots here.
