The southern Peak District, like many rural regions of the United Kingdom privileges a particular ‘way of seeing’ the landscape, a Romantic spectacle reinforced in contemporary heritage practices. Yet, the spectacle contains a series of fragments and spaces that resist easy categorisation. This paper proposes a way to account for some of these fragments of the landscape by foregrounding how they constitute a constellation that contribute to its making and unmaking. This is explored in the subversive practices, unwanted fragments and local narratives that showcase an ‘alternative telling’ of the landscape that simultaneously performs a different kind of heritage.
