The Hurkling Stones

The Hurkling Stones
The Hurkling Stones is a name that sits uneasily in my mind and conjures up visions of sinister rocks imbued with a malevolent power. In reality, those iconic natural sculptures sitting high above the Derwent Valley feel nothing though sometimes, when the westering sun wanes and the clouds darken the sky one can often feel their personality seeping out, touching those who wander there alone…or is it just me?

  1. No, the entire arc of the Edges above Derwent is captivating. Whilst clear skies are more often than not a bonus, walking up there in mist and seeing those strange sculptures emerge from the shadows is mesmerising in its own right.
