About Stoodley Pike

Stoodley Pike is a 402 m high elevation in the southern Pennines in the northern English county of West Yorkshire. The exposed hill carries the widely visible Stoodley Pike Monument, a 37 m high obelisk with a viewing platform. The foothills, which are not too conspicuous themselves, have become famous primarily for the striking monument on its northern tip. At first, it was just called Stoodley Pike, just like the hill; later the official name of the monument was changed to Stoodley Pike Monume
