Companion Stones of the Peak District

12th December 2020

From time to time on our guided walks we come across various stones or similar objects inscribed with poetry or phrases to read and reflect. The messages are very thought provoking and fit beautifully into the surrounding landscape. The stones can be found dotted around the millstone edges area of the Peak District and have been created by local artists. They were produced in response to the ancient Guide Stoops that helped travellers navigate their way across the moorlands. The words on the stones hold directions to guide us in the future and the tricky environmental terrain we have yet to navigate, very appropriate for our current situation!
