SK1771 : Hob's House Cave

near to Monsal Head, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Hob's House Cave
Hob's House Cave
At 240M (800ft) altitude the cave is a descending fissure at the back of the landslip. An early dated human skeleton was found among the debris at the bottom. Hob was a giant who emerged at night to thresh the local farmers corn in exchange for bowls of cream; I think we can assume this is just a legend.
