Salt Cellar

nr Ashopton, Derbyshire

Quick Guide
See below grid for details

A gritstone feature in the heart of the Peak District.

The Salt Cellar is reached by a long, steep and often muddy path. If you can muster up the energy to get to the top you'll be rewarded with views over the Ladybower and Derwent reservoirs as well as the Salt Cellar rock formation.

When photographing the rock formation in heather growing season you can get a carpet of purple and green far reaching into the distance.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far more information.

Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Further information and Planning Grids or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you quote the CIN Page Ref at the bottom of the Planning Grid above. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.

Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
