Salt Cellar - Peak District

Salt Cellar - Peak District

The magnificent Salt Cellar Boulder stands on Derwent Edge, high above Ladybower Reservoir.
It is gritstone and part of the long ridge of stone known by geologists as The Chatsworth Grit that runs down the east side of the Peak District. Stanage Edge, Millstone Edge, and Curbar Edge are all the same type of stone.
Salt Cellar Boulder is so called because many people feel it’s shape resembles a salt pot.
