Besides the food there is a notice board with details of those practicing alternative therapies. It's quite amazing what is available locally.

The site on Stoodley Pike was probably used for bronze age burials, since bones were found when excavating for the first circular tower.
This was built in 1815 to celebrate the peace at the end of the Napoleonic war. Unfortunately, it collapsed when the next war started, on the day the Russian ambassador left London before the Crimean War. The present monument was built in 1856.
You can climb up the inner spiral staircase counting 39 steps in the dark to get a great view. Stoodley Pike may also have been a beacon site. A beacon was temporarily put up and lit on 19th July 1988 to commemorate the great chain of beacons 400 years earlier, when the Spanish Armada was sighted off the southern coast.
