Hen Cloud

Hen Cloud
Hen Cloud is a gritstone outcrop between The Roaches and Ramshaw Rocks. Clud is a Celtic word meaning "rock" and Hen may be a corruption of "Herme", the Celtic fertility god, or "Henge", steep - so Herme's Rock or Steep Rock. These rocks are only 3 miles from Leek, just inside the boundary of the Peak District National Park.
