This resting place or viewing pavilion was called The Belvedere, and it is sometimes referred to as an old watch tower, or as a folly. It was built by Emanuel Belilios, as a feature of his garden for his nearby house 'The Eyrie'. E.R. Belilios eccentrically commuted between the Peak and Central on a camel until the Peak Tramway was built.
