Wonders of the Peak

In 1678, Thomas Hobbs left Chatsworth early one morning for Buxton, returning the following day via a different route. He remembered his journey in a poem written in Latin.'de Mirabilibus Pecci' (concerning the great marvels of the Peaks).

In 1681 Charles Cotton of Beresford Hall and friend of the famous angler Izaac Walton, published his 'Wonders of the Peak', describing the same seven features admired by Hobbes.
