Solomon’s Temple by Rob Bates

Solomon’s Temple is an incredible folly and viewpoint which provides some of the best views of the High Peak in the Peak District. The tower has two storeys and measures around 20 feet in height. It’s is located on a headland called Grin Low which used to be a Bronze Age burial site and the location of early limestone quarrying. Grin Low Hill is approximately 1,440 feet or 438 metres above sea level so from the top you get some spectacular views of Buxton and High Peak! Solomon Mycock built the original tower in the 1840s to give work to the unemployed of Buxton – it had no practical purpose except to provide employment while it was being built. (Buxton, England)
