The Occult has always had a strong presence in Buxton and surrounding Derbyshire. The significance of The Occult and The Illuminati is one not be ignored. Many readers will be aware of The Illuminati and World Leaders involvement in the occult, most natably at Bohemian Grove, where world leaders, both political and financial, meet together and worship a huge stone, and pefrorm strange satanic rituals, including mock sacrifices. If your new to this subject then watch the following video. Regardless of mine, or your beliefs, it's important to note that the Illumaniti, Freemasons etc. take these things very seriously.

The following information was sent to me by Mark Roberts who has done an incredible job of searching out this for me.
Unexpectedly for a midland county, Derbyshire has maintained to some of its earliest pagan traditions, despite later invasions by the Romans, the Angles and the Danish Vikings. It was populated by a Celtic tribe, the Coritani, and in the North of the county and further beyond, there was another more war-like tribe called the Brigantes. “In the province of Brigantia, all deities were subject to the mother goddess of the same name – the (so-called) living goddess of water.” (From p.29, Childs, Joy, A history of Derbyshire, Phillimore, 1987. (so-called was inserted))
The region was popular with the Romans as a major source of lead and other minerals and mining has always been an important local industry. After their departure, the area of Derbyshire eventually became part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia and the county was closely associated with neighboring Nottinghamshire in terms of local customs. The Anglo-Saxon capital was Repton, also a Christian centre that came to be desecrated by the Vikings. They made their own capital eight miles further North in Northworthy, which they renamed as Deoraby, now Derby, from which the county takes its name. Derby, Nottingham, Lincoln, Stamford and Leicester were the five, East Midland, Danish burhs during the period of the Danelaw. Derby was subsequently recaptured to become part of Anglo-Saxon England again until it was the turn of the Normans to take over the country.
In carrying out this piece of research for Derbyshire, it seems that the pagan Celtic aspects of the county have stood out as the dominant factor. These relate to the North-western part of the county, an area known as the Peak District, which, more properly, comprises a wider area including parts of the surrounding counties of Staffordshire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester (Lancashire) and Yorkshire. Peak District paganism is not "new age" inasmuch as it has probably persisted in measure since Celtic times. Furthermore, unlike the “new age religions,” its adherents have not generally been hostile to cultural Christianity, since traditionally church-going has gone along with parallel beliefs rooted in the older superstitions. This is not to discount the fact that an outright occultism has also run alongside this pagan-Christian syncretism.
2. Stone circles
The Peak District is famous for a number of stone circles, dating back about 4000 years. These circles and solitary stones are believed to be associated with worship and to have alignments with phases of the sun and moon. There are various opinions on the early purpose of these circles throughout the nation. My own view is that are female fertility symbols associated with the “mother goddess.”
Three major ones are Arbor Low near Monyash, called the “Stonehenge of the North”, the Nine Ladies’ Stone Circle on Stanton Moor and the Ninestones Circle on Harthill Moor. There are various others, but Arbor Low is regarded as the most important. It is said to be geomantrically linked with the other two major ones mentioned.
“Both the Ninestones and the Nine Ladies’ Circles are directly aligned with Derbyshire’s main henge monument at Arbor Low, the invisible lines passing through burial mounds on the way. .. But claims of up to one hundred and fifty ley lines emanating from it have caused the monument to be described as a veritable New Stone Age and Bronze Age ‘Spaghetti Junction’ .. ”(from pp 22-23, Childs, Joy, A history of Derbyshire, Phillimore, 1987.)
Some of the standing stones have witchcraft associations.
“The Nine Ladies is a favourite meeting place for modern witches and pagans and it is claimed that strange ceremonies are still performed at another circle in the county on Midsummer night, 21 June. A number of covens, both black and white, are rumoured to use special places on the Derbyshire landscape for their secret meetings. One local writer was told that Derbyshire’s oldest group, known as the ‘The Coven of the Ram’, use a cave in the Matlock Bath area for their practices. The ram has obvious symbolic pagan connotations and appears in the old ballad of the Derby Tup, a traditional ballad published in Jewitt’s The Ballads and Songs of Derbyshire. Rams and Antlered stags are symbolic of Derbyshire and indeed the county sign itself is dominated by the images of three stag heads. The stag and the ram are sometimes depicted wearing golden chains which symbolize their ability to shapeshift between animal and god, an action mimicked in certain modern witchcraft ceremonies.” (From pp.102-103, Supernatural Peak District by David Clarke, Robert Hale – London, 2000) [See the illustration below.]

4. Goddess worship and other worship (Taken from Supernatural Peak District)
Mention has already been made of the goddess named Brigantia from which the tribe of Brigantes took their name. There is also evidence that goddess associated with water, but referred to as Arnemetia or Arnomecta, meaning “the goddess behind the sacred grove”, was worshipped by the Celts in the High Peak area. There was a shrine to her by the thermal springs at Buxton. This goddess is otherwise known as Danu or Anu or Annan, etc, and “With Badb and Macha, she is sometimes part of a triumvirate of war goddesses.” (From en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anann)
She was the mother goddess and the wife of the sun god, Belenos. Anu became Christianized as St Anne and there are St Anne’s Wells all over Britain. The Dane Hills in Leicestershire were also named after her. (From www.earlybritishkingdoms.com/bios/don.html)
“As well as a mother goddess the Celtic tribes of Peakland appear to have worshipped a pantheon of deities including a horned god, a horse goddess called Epona and a variety of spirits or personifications of nature in the form of wells and springs, rivers, mountains, special trees and stones.
They also practised a head cult, preserving the severed heads of enemies as trophies and oracles and carving human and animal heads in stone and wood to represent revered ancestors and protective spirits of the hearth and of the tribe.” (From p.164, Supernatural Peak District) (my underlining)
5. Evidence of demonic activity
The book Supernatural Peak District by David Clarke has separate chapters on various kinds of apparitions: haunted houses, road ghosts, supernatural animals, mining spectres, phantoms of moor and fell, the haunted valley, ghost fliers (i.e., airplanes) and UFOs.
The following is a direct quote from a BBC documentary about a secret group of people local to the Peak District.
“They believe in the old Celtic gods and goddesses and their religion is tied to the fertility of the earth.”
And, on this programme a “guardian” of this group elaborated that:
“These were .. ordinary families who retained a basic belief in the Earth or Mother Goddess and other ancient deities, a system which ran alongside their Christian beliefs. It was not a tradition that was separate from Christianity as most were regular church-goers since childhood.”(From p.107, Supernatural Peak District)
The origins of the tradition are alternatively said to lie in pagan tradition or in giving thanks for the purity of the water drawn from certain wells during the period of the Black Death. It is often said to originate in Tissington, Derbyshire.
The custom died out, but during the twentieth century, it was revived and has spread to numerous villages and small towns in Derbyshire, Staffordshire, and South Yorkshire, and even as far afield as Much Wenlock.”(From en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Well_dressing)
Despite its pagan origin, it has now become a Christian tradition (differing from Easter and Christmas in being fairly localised).
Clipping is an archaic word for embracing. A description and explanation of church clipping is given in the following passage:
“A human chain surrounds the church with joined hands, as once pagan Celtic communities are believed to have done around their hallowed sites such as stone circles ... Christian churches sometimes occupied pre-existing places of sanctity”(From p.87, Childs, Joy, A history of Derbyshire, Phillimore, 1987.)
7. Additional points from “A history of Derbyshire” by Joy Childs
a) In a 1677 religious census of England the people of the Peak District had the highest proportion of Roman Catholics (p.77), suggesting the strength of Queen of Heaven worship.
b) The Catholic-Protestant battle, historically, has waged furiously in Derbyshire. The 1688 “Glorious Revolution,” the peaceful deposing of the Catholic James II fin favour of the Protestant William of Orange, was planned in Old Whittington near Chesterfield (p.76). The Jacobite “pretender” to the English throne gave up his Southward advance at Derby in 1745, despite being proclaimed king there (p.82).
c) Buxton is England’s highest borough (p.111), pointing to its selection as a “high place.” The Romans also had an altar to Mars at Buxton (p.29).

The Obelisk and Stone Circles date back to biblical times.
All pagans love to worship the creature rather than the Creator [Romans 1:25]; therefore, every single pagan group in the world worships the Sex Act. Both Satanism and Freemasonry absolutely love the Obelisk. The Egyptians created the obelisk, believing that the spirit of the Sun god, Ra, dwelt in there. [H.L. Hayward, Symbolic Masonry: An Interpretation of the Three Degrees, Washington, D.C., Masonic Service Association of the United States, 1923, p. 207; 'Two Pillars' Short Talk Bulletin, Sept., 1935, Vol. 13, No 9; Charles Clyde Hunt, Some Thoughts On Masonic Symbolism, Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Company, 1930, p. 101]
There are many many obelisks around the world. Above - The Washington Obelix, The Buenos Aires Obelix and The Buxton Obelix.
Satanists -- and Invisible Masons -- also depict the obelisk as the erect male organ. One Luciferian author writes that "... the lingam [male phallus] was an upright pillar" [W. Wynn Wescott, Numbers: Their Occult Power and Mystic Virtues, Theosophical Publishing Society, 1902, p. 33] A Masonic author both admit that these pillars of the obelisk were used to represent sex [Haywood, quoted above, p. 206-7 and Rollin C. Blackmer, The Lodge and the Craft: A Practical Explanation of the Work of Freemasonry, St. Louis, The Standard Masonic Publishing Co., 1923, p. 94]
In the Bible, we see the obelisk in use in Baal worship, the priests killed on God's orders, and the obelisks destroyed. Listen to the account i which God destroyed these obelisks: ""… King Jehu said to the guards and to the officers, 'Go in and slay them; let none escape'. And they smote them with the sword; and the guards before the king threw their bodies out, and went into the inner dwelling of the house of Baal. They brought out the obelisks [pillars] of the house of Baal and burned them." [2 Kings 10:26, Amplified Bible]
The next time you see an obelisk in your Freemasonry organization, you now know you are looking at one of the supreme objects in Baal worship, for which God ultimately destroyed Israel. If you are christian, remember you are also tolerating a Satanic symbol of the sex act.

CIRCLE WITH A DOT (Millstone, as is the symbol of The Peak District)
Since the Satanist worships the Sex Act, he must have a symbol of the female organ, to go along with the male organ -- the Obelisk. And, indeed, Satanists do have a symbol of the female organ -- the Circle. And, when a point is added to the middle of the circle, you have the complete sex act, the male being the point and the female being the circle ["Point Within A Circle", Masonic Short Talk Bulletin, August, 1931, Vol. 9, No. 8, Reprinted July, 1990, p. 4.]
Listen to Albert Mackey, a 33 Degree Mason, describe this Satanic belief: "The point within the circle is an interesting and important symbol in Freemasonry ... The symbol is really a beautiful but somewhat abstruse allusion to the old Sun-Worship, and introduces us for the first time to that modification of it, known among the ancients as the worship of the Phallus." [Short Talk Bulletin, February, 1936; Vol. 14, No. 2, Reprinted July, 1980, p. 7]. Isn't this wonderful? Mackey tells us that this point within a circle is really the old Sun Worship which Masons have copied the Ancient Mysteries Religions to modify it as a phallus symbol.
But, you may ask, how does a point or a dot within a circle represent the phallus? Good question. For the answer, we turn to the Masonic Short Talk Bulletin, "Point Within A Circle", August, 1931, Vol. 9, No 8, Reprinted July, 1990, p. 4. Listen:
"The Indian interpretation makes the point the male principle, the circle the female; the point became the sun and the circle the solar system which anicent peoples thought was the universe because the sun is the vivifying, the life-giving principle, for all that lives."
Truly, Freemasonry copies the Biblical definition of a Pagan perfectly. Listen: "Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever." [Romans 1:25] Freemasons make the King James Bible their translation in the Bibles they publish for members, so they have the "truth of God"; but, they changed this truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator", worshipping the Sun and Moon, and the Phallus, just as have the Ancient Satanic Mysteries of olden times.
We will be adding to this article as time allows, for there are so many other symbols that Freemasons use that regular, run-of-the-mill Satanists use that your mind will be boggled.
But, let us end our discussion about this Dot Within A Circle symbol by noting that Adam Weishaupt, the Satanic priest of the Masters of the Illuminati, who formed the New World Order Plan to produce Antichrist, used this symbol to represent his Satanic coven. Listen:
"Because the true purposes of Illuminism were so shocking, Weishaupt constantly encouraged the secretive nature of the order. No member was ever allowed himself to be identified as an Illuminati. The words Illuminism or Illuminati were never to be used in correspondence, but were to be replaced by the astrological symbol of the sun, a circle with a dot in the middle." [William Still, New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies, Lafayette, Louisiana, Huntington House, Inc., 1990, p. 73]
The Masters of the Illuminati, the most Black Magick Satanic group in all of human history, uses the symbol of a dot within a circle to represent its group. You can find this dot within a circle in Freemasonry. This is hardly a coincidence, and one of the more definitive proofs that Masonry is Satanic.
Truly, the End of the Age, along with its unparalleled deception, is upon us.
Strangely enough, another Buxton in The UK, which is situated on the B1354 and is eight miles north of Norwich, many miles away from Buxton, Derbyshire, have their own millstone representation which is The Actual Village Sign.
