Earl Sterndale

About

A remote hill village surrounded by magnificent hills and dales overlooking the Upper Dove Valley.

Just five miles south of Buxton, this is a spot worth finding. Few villages have such spectacular scenery on their doorstep, with the distinctive limestone peaks of High Wheeldon, Chrome and Parkhouse Hills nearby; there is also the bonus that this area is less well known and much quieter than the Lower Dove. The village is based mainly on agriculture, with nearby limestone quarries providing employment.

Things to do; The most unusual feature in the village is the pub, called The Quiet Woman, the sign depicts one without her head! The small church of St Michael had the misfortune to have been bombed during the Second World War. Good circular walks take in some of the very best scenery in the White Peak. There is some good holiday accommodation in and around the village, which is conveniently placed for Buxton and Bakewell.
