Beeley Moor, Derbyshire,

Before You Go

A square prehistoric burial mound with an earthwork ditch and outer bank.  It was named after a local goblin.

Managed by the Peak District National Park Authority.

Before You Go


How to find it: Take Chesterfield Road off the B6012 at Beeley, heading east. After just over a mile and a half the road bends sharply right (southeast) as it comes out onto open moorland.  At this bend there is a unmade track on the left and a wide gravel area at the start of this, with room for several vehicles to park. Hob Hurst's House is just over a mile's walk from here - carry on down the track to the large gate on your right that allows access to Beeley Warren moor.  Go over the stile and you will see a small wooden sign to Hob Hurst's House directing you to take the sunken lane to the right.  Keep heading along this path in a northerly direction until you see the site and interpretation sign on your right.  

Parking: In addition to the area at the start of the track, there is an informal layby alongside the road just after the junction with the track.

Access: The part of the walk from the first stile is a fairly strenous uphill walk across moorland with gates and stiles.

Facilities: There are no facilities on site.

Dogs: Dogs on leads are welcome but must be kept under close control as there may be animals grazing.

Please be aware: Hob Hurst's House is on open moorland with no shelter and can be exposed during poor weather.

Plan a Great Day Out

Why not make a day of it and visit two other nearby prehistoric sites in our care? Nine Ladies Stone Circle, a small Bronze Age stone circle, is five miles to the southwest, and Arbor Low Stone Circle, a Neolithic henge, is then a further six miles to the west. Enjoy beautiful Peak District moorland views from both.

Or extend your day out with a visit to the imposing ruins of Peveril Castle, set on a hillside overlooking the pretty village of Castleton and offering breathtaking views across the Hope Valley and beyond.
