Village

Details

A tiny White Peak hamlet in an isolated location, somewhat overshadowed by its' limestone quarry.

There are just a few farms and scattered cottages in the hamlet, which is all that remains of a larger medieval settlement. 5 miles north of Ashbourne, the road to Ballidon goes only to the huge limestone quarry of the same name. Parwich is the nearest village just a mile away to the west.

Things to do; The Limestone Way footpath passes close to Ballidon, also nearby is the High Peak Trail. To the north is Royston Grange, a former monastic farm where there is a 4-mile archaeological trail.
