The Needle's Eye
The Needle's Eye
This cleft in the rock is known as The Needle's Eye. Legend says that this is from the axe of a giant. A rock now sits in the cleft and it's said that if you can pass through the gap beneath, you will see your true love. However, further folklore says that if a maiden looks back as she passes through, she will never be wed and also that you can never be a true Salopian until you've passed through.
