About the neighbourhood

The village centre is where the Leek to Ashbourne road, the A523, crosses the Hamps and the road to Cauldon turns off south.

Just above here is the old station, once the terminus of the Manifold and Hamps Light Railway, and the remaining station buildings have been restored by the Peak Park and converted into an information and cycle hire centre. There is one other noteable pub in the village, the George Inn. There is a local village shop, a post office and a butchers within the village. A kilometre and a half away to the north is the small farming hamlet of Waterfall...
