Rock Chair at Harborough Rocks

Yesterday, on our semi-wild camping expedition in the White Peak area of the Peak District we walked up to the trig point at the top of Harborough Rocks.  It’s only a short distance off the High Peak Trail near to Brassington.  A fascinating feature is this limestone rock chair.

Although many of the rocks in this area have eroded naturally into unusual shapes, it’s likely that this particular feature has at some point in history been carved by man.  No-one seems to know when, but graffiti on the back of the chair dates as far back as 1757.

The chair is actually quite comfortable and certainly offers excellent views across the Derbyshire countryside.
