Alstonefield

About

Alstonefield is a small picturesque village in the White Peak area of the Peak District National Park and lies on the borders of Staffordshire and Derbyshire on the watershed between the valleys of the Dove and the Manifold rivers and at the crossroads of several old packhorse routes.

The main part of the village is set around the lovely village green with The George hotel and the spreading trees. It is within easy distance of St. Peter's church and the old Hall, and stretches along the Rakes; a name given to old lead mining sites, which occupies the ridgeway between the two valleys. The village also retains its ancient Tithe Barn, found behind the late 16th century rectory.

Nearby Alstonefield you will find Hanson Grange; an old farmstead and site of an ancient burial ground. Numerous reported sounds of violent fighting and cries of anguish are thought to stem back to the murder in 1467 of a man named John Mycock. Witnesses were too scared to testify so the murderers never went to trial before the King. Maybe this is why the sounds of that fateful night can still be heard as this murder most foul has gone unavenged for centuries.
