  1. This is not pedens point.l sat on pedens point,Lynn glen every week for eighteen years .someone got the rock grandmother born 1905 used to take me there as did my mum and uncle born 1928 & 1936.

    • Hi, excellent information. Will delete the picture. Where is Peden’s point in the glen? A description, or pointers to it, would help others to locate it.

  2. Correct – this isn’t Peden’s Point. This is a rock in the Lynn Glen downstream from the Point. The Point is a rock outcrop with a natural amphitheatre below it where Peden is alleged to have preached. I lived close to it and climbed it as a boy…

    • Hi, thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it. I do strive to be accurate. Could you help me to pin point it more precisely on the map? An image would be really useful, if you have one. My email in in the about section.

      Thanks for taking the time to confirm the previous post.
