Peak District quiz – The answers

Hello again people and pooches. Joe the Cocker here. While we are in lockdown and can’t visit the beautiful Peak District, we thought that we would do a little quiz, just for fun, to relieve the boredom. We posted the questions a few days ago and here are the answers. Hope that you scored well!

1 This is the village of Rainow taken from Kerridge Hill. The ridge walk takes you from White Nancy, near to Bollington in the Cheshire peaks.

2 The hut is at the base of the Roaches in Staffordshire

3 The hill is called Hen Cloud and is part of the gritstone ridge of the Roaches

4 Another part of the Roaches. This is Doxey Pool, the legendary lair of Jenny Greenteeth a water spirit

5 Lud’s Church is a deep chasm in the gritstone above Gradbach in Staffordshire. The place is surrounded by legends and history.

6 The ruins below are of Errwood Hall in the Goyt Valley. It was demolished in 1934 to make way for the construction of Fernilee Reservoir.

7 We were sat eating our lunch on the summit ridge of Shining Tor, the highest point in Cheshire. In the distance the pointed summit of Shutlingsloe can be seen.

8 The chimney is the remains of Danebank Quarry above the River Dane. The road above is the A54 and leads to the Cat and Fiddle pub near Buxton.

9 The very popular Three Shires Head on the River Dane is a beautiful spot to relax

10 We were heading toward Wildboarclough with Shutlingsloe ahead to climb.

11 The bridge spans the River Derwent at Slippery Stones at the head of Howden Reservoir.

12 The head of the Howden Reservoir

13 The Great Ridge and Mam Tor outside of Castleton

14 The summit trig point of Mam Tor

15 The overflow of Derwent Dam

That’s all for now. Thank you to everyone who took part. Till next time!
