Well known for its lonely church, the 'Chapel in the Wilderness', this is a pleasant, moorland village nestling under the Cloud.

Nearby lies the ancient neolithic monument The Bridestones. Easy access to the old railway line (approximately 8.5 km long) which takes you on a great walk to the north end of Rudyard Lake and then on to Leek.
