Details

Charlesworth is a village near Glossop, Derbyshire, England. It is located 2 miles south-west of Glossop's town centre and very close to the borders of Greater Manchester with the nearby village of Broadbottom in Tameside.
Charlesworth holds an annual carnival on its recreation ground, which includes fell races and other events.

The village is at the foot of the "Monks' Road", which was used by the monks of Basingwerk Abbey in North Wales. At the top of the road is the Abbot's Chair, the base of a monastic cross also known as the Charlesworth Cross.
