Hathersage

About

At the eastern end of the Hope Valley, a large busy village with rich historical, industrial and literary associations.

Hathersage has become a popular place to visit for those in search of legendary heroes and literary heroines. By the south door of the church of St Michael is the grave of Robin Hood's lieutenant, Little John, who was reputedly born in Hathersage. Near the village other associated sites with the outlaw are Robin Hood's Cave, Well and Stoop. Charlotte Bronte has close connections with the village and it is said to be featured it in her novels. North Lees Hall is thought to have been the model for Thornfield Hall in Jane Eyre. Hathersage was once an important centre for the manufacture of millstones, needles and pins. There are some outstanding areas of natural beauty surrounding the village, including Stanage and Burbage Edges, Offerton and Abney Moor and Bretton Clough. The river Derwent passes just south of the village at Leadmill, where there is a picturesque bridge an old country inn.

Things to do; A popular base for exploring the Hope Valley, either on foot or by vehicle, there is plenty to see and do here. Outdoor enthusiasts can walk, cycle, climb, ride and even fly nearby. Some fine old country houses like Offerton, Highlow, and Hazelford Halls are set in the spectacular countryside surrounding the village. The Derwent Valley Heritage Trail runs close by the village. With a wealth of facilities including shops selling local crafts, foods, plants, clothing and outdoors equipment and good hotels, pubs, cafes and restaurants, it is a busy village. Leisure facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, open during the summer, tennis courts, bowling green and a fitness and health centre. Just out of the village in the unusual Round Building is a small factory making specialist cutlery, where tours are often available and there is also a factory shop. There is a good selection of accommodation for visitors in hotels, inns, guesthouses, holiday cottages and campsites in and around the village, where there is also a popular Youth Hostel. The village has an annual carnival in July and a Horticultural Show in August. There are regular performances, including a pantomime, by the local amateur dramatic society the Hathersage Players, and occasional concerts by the village choral society and silver band are held in the church.
