Alstonefield

Pea Low Bowl Barrow is a very large Bowl Barrow, possibly Chambered Tomb, at Alstonefield. Curiously difficult to see despite its enormous size. It's original shape somewhat denuded by erosion. From the top there are extensive views north six or so miles including the whole of the Dove Valley. Footpaths make it accessible.
Historic England: https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1009603.
The monument includes Pea Low bowl barrow located on the crest of a ridge with higher ground to the northwest. It survives as an impressively large oval mound up to 3.5m high with maximum dimensions of 45.5m by 38m. A series of quarry pits measuring up to 20m diameter by 0.5m deep, and dug for construction of the mound, are visible on all sides except the south-east. The mound displays areas of disturbance, notably a stony hollow on it's southwestern side measuring 13m by 6m and 1.5m deep that is considered to have been the site of a former limekiln, and a shallow area of exposed rubble on the southeastern side that is the site of antiquarian investigations. These limited investigations revealed evidence of the barrow having been re-used during Roman times. Inhumations, cremations, faunal remains, flint, iron artefacts and Roman coins were all recovered during the course of these excavations. All fences and drystone walls are excluded from the scheduling. The ground beneath these features, however, is included.

Hartington

Arbor Low Henge is a Henge located on the Derbyshire limestone plateau equidistant from Monyash, Youlgreave and Hartington. Inside the ditch and bank are around forty-five or so limestone stones, much weathered, all recumbent, some broken. Not clear whether they were once standing. In the centre is believd to be a Cove although the stones are now lying on the ground and its difficult to see whether it was a Cove or not. The views north are spectacular; around five miles of limestone plateau. Looking south you can't see anything since Arbor Low lies, curiously, on the side rather than the top of the hill from the top of the hill you can see Minning Low Chambered Tomb.
Nearby Gib Hill is very prominent. There are signs of an avenue or earthworks east..
Arbor Low Henge and the Bull Ring Henge are so similar as to be considered twins notwithstanding the absence of a stone circle at the Bull Ring.
Arbor Low is located next to farm whose farmyard you have to walk through to get there. There is a little tin which requests you donate a £1. There are around five parking spaces halfway up the lane into the farm.
Historic England: https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1011087.
The monument is situated in the central uplands of the limestone plateau of Derbyshire and includes, within two areas, Arbor Low henge and stone circle, the linear bank adjoining the henge, and the bowl barrow superimposed on the east side of the henge bank. The henge comprises a massive bank and internal quarry ditch surrounding an oval area with a diameter of c.40m by 52m. The ditch varies between 7m and 12m wide and has been demonstrated by Gray, who carried out partial excavations of the site in 1901-2, to have been 2-3m deep originally with steep rock-cut sides. The bank, which is c.2m high and between 8m and 10m wide, is roughly circular and has an external diameter of 90m by 85m. It is estimated originally to have been c.3m high and is broken by two entrances, one to the north-west and the other to the south-south-east. The ditch is crossed by causeways at the entrances, the former 9m wide and the latter 6m wide. Gray excavated both terminals of the ditch at the north-west entrance, uncovering the remains of bone and antler tools, flint flakes and a number of flint artefacts which included scrapers, a leaf shaped arrowhead and a barbed and tanged arrowhead. Traces of fire were also found, together with a series of ledges which Gray interpreted as steps. Antler tines were found at the south-south-east entrance and are also taken to be the remains of tools used to construct the henge. A stone in this entrance, and a corresponding pit in the north-west causeway, indicate that both entrances may originally have contained portal stones.
Within the henge are the remains of a large irregular stone circle originally comprising 41-43 upright limestone slabs. Of these, only one is still standing and several are broken so that there are now more than 50 stumps and fragments. The stones were roughly equally spaced in the ring and varied in height between 1m and nearly 3m with the tallest stones standing near the entrances of the henge. At the centre of the circle is a ruined stone-setting called the cove which consisted of at least six stones believed to have been set in a rectangle. Gray excavated part of the cove and found, on the east side, within an oval arrangement of large blocks, an extended skeleton laid with its head to the south-south-east. Several metres north-east of this he found traces of another human burial, in a pit disturbed by an earlier unrecorded excavation. A further burial was found outside the circle in 1845 when Thomas Bateman partially excavated the large bowl barrow superimposed on the south-east side of the henge.
This barrow, which is c.21m in diameter and survives to a height of c.2.5m, was at least partly constructed from material taken from the henge bank and so, in its present form, must be of later date. However, near the centre of the barrow, on the old land surface, Bateman found a limestone cist or grave containing, in addition to the remains of a human cremation and artefacts of flint and bone, two unusual pots which are similar to Late Neolithic Peterborough ware. The dating of these pots, and the location of the cist on the old land surface, indicate that the burial may in fact be earlier than the barrow and predates or is contemporary with the henge. The construction of the barrow suggests the later re-use of the burial place, probably in the Bronze Age. Leading southwards from the henge is a bank and ditch which extends for c.150m. To the south of this, a further section turns westward through Gib Hill plantation and is c.200m long. Between the two there is a gap of c.70m which contains no visible earthworks but may contain the buried remains of an intervening section of bank and ditch: however, this area is not included in the scheduling as the extent and state of survival of the remains is not sufficiently understood. In both upstanding sections of the earthwork, the bank is 2-3m wide and less than 1m high while the shallow ditch is c.6m wide and lies to the east of the bank. Gray carried out an excavation at the junction of the bank with the henge and found it to be later than or contemporary with the latter. Despite its sometimes being referred to as "the avenue", the feature is not thought to be a formal structure related to the henge as it does not lead to an entrance. Instead it is interpreted as a field boundary and has yet to be precisely dated. All modern field walls and fencing crossing the monument are excluded from the scheduling although the ground beneath these features is included. Together with nearby Gib Hill, the henge, stone circle and barrow have been in State care since 1884..

Bretby Repton

My Recollections by Adeline Horsey Countess Cardigan 1824 1915 Chapter V: Country House Visits. On my second visit to Bretby I remember we acted De Musset's play, Le Caprice. Lady Chesterfield's daughter, Evelyn Stanhope, afterwards Countess of Carnarvon, and Miss Anson, afterwards Countess Howe, took the girls' parts, and I was the hero. Lady Dufferin coached me and, what was very important, taught me to sit down like a man ! My costume was an olla podrida of other people's garments, for I wore Lady Chesterfield's riding-trousers, Lord Cleveden's coat and waistcoat, one of Lord Chesterfield's shirts, and a curly wig put the finishing-touch to the character. Le Caprice was a great success, and we were highly pleased with ourselves.

My Recollections by Adeline Horsey Countess Cardigan 1824 1915 Chapter V: Country House Visits. Bretby was the scene of the enforced retirement of the lovely Lady Chesterfield, whose jealous husband brought her thither from the Court of Charles II. De Grammont followed her, and I have often sat in the summer-house, described in his " Memoirs," where he patiently waited for his inamorata to pass by.

On 01 Apr 1353 John Segrave 4th Baron Segrave 1315-1353 (37) died at Bretby Repton.

My Recollections by Adeline Horsey Countess Cardigan 1824 1915 Chapter V: Country House Visits. In the autumn of 1844 we went to Bretby, the seat of the Earl of Chesterfield (38), where we spent a most enjoyable time. There was a large house-party, among many others the Duke (44) and Duchess (26) of Montrose, Mr. (37) and Lady Sophia des Voeux, Lord Alvanley (54), and the Count de Nieukerke, who was the recognised lover of Princess Mathilde Bonaparte (23). M. de Nieukerke was a very charming man, and he was much struck by my singing, and used to compare me with George Sand's heroine — Consuelo — for I was a very pretty girl with a slight, but fine figure, and long hair that fell in curls below my knees.

Youlgreave

Arbor Low Henge is a Henge located on the Derbyshire limestone plateau equidistant from Monyash, Youlgreave and Hartington. Inside the ditch and bank are around forty-five or so limestone stones, much weathered, all recumbent, some broken. Not clear whether they were once standing. In the centre is believd to be a Cove although the stones are now lying on the ground and its difficult to see whether it was a Cove or not. The views north are spectacular; around five miles of limestone plateau. Looking south you can't see anything since Arbor Low lies, curiously, on the side rather than the top of the hill from the top of the hill you can see Minning Low Chambered Tomb.
Nearby Gib Hill is very prominent. There are signs of an avenue or earthworks east..
Arbor Low Henge and the Bull Ring Henge are so similar as to be considered twins notwithstanding the absence of a stone circle at the Bull Ring.
Arbor Low is located next to farm whose farmyard you have to walk through to get there. There is a little tin which requests you donate a £1. There are around five parking spaces halfway up the lane into the farm.
Historic England: https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1011087.
The monument is situated in the central uplands of the limestone plateau of Derbyshire and includes, within two areas, Arbor Low henge and stone circle, the linear bank adjoining the henge, and the bowl barrow superimposed on the east side of the henge bank. The henge comprises a massive bank and internal quarry ditch surrounding an oval area with a diameter of c.40m by 52m. The ditch varies between 7m and 12m wide and has been demonstrated by Gray, who carried out partial excavations of the site in 1901-2, to have been 2-3m deep originally with steep rock-cut sides. The bank, which is c.2m high and between 8m and 10m wide, is roughly circular and has an external diameter of 90m by 85m. It is estimated originally to have been c.3m high and is broken by two entrances, one to the north-west and the other to the south-south-east. The ditch is crossed by causeways at the entrances, the former 9m wide and the latter 6m wide. Gray excavated both terminals of the ditch at the north-west entrance, uncovering the remains of bone and antler tools, flint flakes and a number of flint artefacts which included scrapers, a leaf shaped arrowhead and a barbed and tanged arrowhead. Traces of fire were also found, together with a series of ledges which Gray interpreted as steps. Antler tines were found at the south-south-east entrance and are also taken to be the remains of tools used to construct the henge. A stone in this entrance, and a corresponding pit in the north-west causeway, indicate that both entrances may originally have contained portal stones.
Within the henge are the remains of a large irregular stone circle originally comprising 41-43 upright limestone slabs. Of these, only one is still standing and several are broken so that there are now more than 50 stumps and fragments. The stones were roughly equally spaced in the ring and varied in height between 1m and nearly 3m with the tallest stones standing near the entrances of the henge. At the centre of the circle is a ruined stone-setting called the cove which consisted of at least six stones believed to have been set in a rectangle. Gray excavated part of the cove and found, on the east side, within an oval arrangement of large blocks, an extended skeleton laid with its head to the south-south-east. Several metres north-east of this he found traces of another human burial, in a pit disturbed by an earlier unrecorded excavation. A further burial was found outside the circle in 1845 when Thomas Bateman partially excavated the large bowl barrow superimposed on the south-east side of the henge.
This barrow, which is c.21m in diameter and survives to a height of c.2.5m, was at least partly constructed from material taken from the henge bank and so, in its present form, must be of later date. However, near the centre of the barrow, on the old land surface, Bateman found a limestone cist or grave containing, in addition to the remains of a human cremation and artefacts of flint and bone, two unusual pots which are similar to Late Neolithic Peterborough ware. The dating of these pots, and the location of the cist on the old land surface, indicate that the burial may in fact be earlier than the barrow and predates or is contemporary with the henge. The construction of the barrow suggests the later re-use of the burial place, probably in the Bronze Age. Leading southwards from the henge is a bank and ditch which extends for c.150m. To the south of this, a further section turns westward through Gib Hill plantation and is c.200m long. Between the two there is a gap of c.70m which contains no visible earthworks but may contain the buried remains of an intervening section of bank and ditch: however, this area is not included in the scheduling as the extent and state of survival of the remains is not sufficiently understood. In both upstanding sections of the earthwork, the bank is 2-3m wide and less than 1m high while the shallow ditch is c.6m wide and lies to the east of the bank. Gray carried out an excavation at the junction of the bank with the henge and found it to be later than or contemporary with the latter. Despite its sometimes being referred to as "the avenue", the feature is not thought to be a formal structure related to the henge as it does not lead to an entrance. Instead it is interpreted as a field boundary and has yet to be precisely dated. All modern field walls and fencing crossing the monument are excluded from the scheduling although the ground beneath these features is included. Together with nearby Gib Hill, the henge, stone circle and barrow have been in State care since 1884..
