The Discovery of the Peak District
The Peak District was an area viewed with fear and foreboding for a thousand years. Largely impenetrable to the traveller, it was called a 'howling wilderness' by Defoe. Its few inhabitants were uncouth and the last troglodytes in England. Their guttural dialect was barely intelligible and their fondness for drink was renowned and repellent. Since Saxon times the Peak was associated with evil and the abode of the devil was located in the huge cave known as Peak's Arse.
