One of the best walks in the Derbyshire Peak District of England is Jacob’s Ladder; an old pack horse route with a short steep climb leading to a magnificent view of the vale (valley) of Edale. It is bounded to the north by Kinder Scout, a plateau described as being ‘full of strange stones and goughs’
  I looked up gough, and discovered it is a channel or fissure in a peat moor; also known as a peat hag, which sounds like a Magical Creature to me. Perhaps the Peat Hags collect the strange stones and build oddly-shaped houses with them which you cannot see because you are a Muggle. Anyway, it is always lovely to learn a new word. (Steve Ruffles flickr)
