Two woodlice running across a saucer
Originally, Peak House. In the 1840s, The Rev. Francis Willis, a heavy gambler, is said to have lost Peak House (now the Raven Hall Hotel), and its extensive grounds to a gentleman called Hammond in a single bet on two woodlice running across a saucer.
In 1540, a farm known as Peak House was owned by the Beswick family. The farm occupied the site of a 5th century Roman signal station. In 1774 Raven Hall was built on the site which stands at 600 ft above sea level. The house was extended and opened as a hotel in 1895 and its golf course opened in 1898.
