Froggatt

About

A small attractive village set below a famed gritstone edge and alongside the scenic wooded banks of the river Derwent.

Quaint little cottages with pretty gardens nestle below the rugged crags of Froggatt Edge forming a peaceful scene that has changed little over the centuries. A narrow old bridge crosses the Derwent here and forms a very picturesque focal point in the village.

Things to do; The highlight of the year is the Froggatt Show, held annually in August on the riverside pastures. There are some excellent walks from the village. Beautiful riverside paths on both banks from the old bridge lead downstream to Calver Bridge; take the path at the end of Spooner Lane over fields to Grindleford, through glorious National Trust woodland. The Derwent Valley Heritage Trail runs through the village. Froggatt Edge is a favourite place for climbers and hang gliders and forms a lofty viewpoint with few equals anywhere in the country. There is a very fine country inn, The Chequers underneath Froggatt Edge on the main road to Sheffield, but there are no shops or other facilities in the village. Nearest villages see Calver and Grindleford.
