Evidence of man's activity at Grin Low dates back over 5,000 years to the Stone Age, when the hill was used for religious rites. In more recent times the quarrying and burning of limestone turned the area into an eyesore with huge white spoil heaps dominating the scene. Fortunately in the late 1970s Derbyshire County Council, together with Buxton and District Civic Society commenced an extensive reclamation project, which transformed the site into an attractive country park.
