    Robin Hood’s Stride is a distinctive rock formation on the Limestone Way. According to legend, folklore hero Robin Hood once jumped between the two raised stone pillars. When you see how far apart they are, you may not fancy your chances. With some care, it is possible to climb the rocks safely for breathtaking views over the Peaks. Be sure to pay a visit to Nine Stones Close stone circle, Cratcliffe Rocks and the Hermit's Cave, which are both nearby.

    I don't think I'd try to replicate the legend here, they are much further apart than the photos depict.

    Beautiful rock formation near the village of Elton. Visited around 6 pm and witnessed a nice sundown.
