All around the top edge of Kinder Scout there are fascinating gritstone rock formations.
On our walk today along the northern edge of the mountain, we passed these. They are known as ‘The Boxing Gloves’. If you use your imagination a little, you can see a face with gloved, raised hands up in front of it.
Whether you think they look like a man with boxing gloves on or not, it’s a really beautiful place!

Stunning photo of rock boxing gloves. I just have to view them, just where are they? Jack
They’re on the northern edge of Kinder Scout. If you walk from the north west tip of Kinder Scout on the path along the northern edge towards Fairbrook Naze, you’ll pass them.
