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 unmetalled track on the left and there is 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 that allows access to Beeley Warren moor, go over the stile and you will see a small sign to Hob Hurst's House directing you to take the sunken lane to the right. There are signs for the site for remainder of the walk to it.
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.
