Welcome to Companion Stones, a contemporary response to the Guide Stoops of the Derbyshire moorlands and a speculative map for the future.

Like the stoops, set up three hundred years ago to help travellers across treacherous moorlands, the Companion Stones also hold directions. Not to the safety of ancient market towns but for an equally perilous journey that we take into the future.

Companion Stones is a project created by Arts in the Peak in conjunction with the PDNPA and eighteen poets and artists of the Peak.

Explore the stones, their poems and designs, through the site menu to the right or the artist menu to the left.

Read about the project, download further information, make contact or access the map through the top home menu.
