AboutA small hamlet at a junction of roads high up on the limestone plateau of the White Peak.
An old coaching inn, which has sadly seen better days, stands on the Ashbourne to Buxton road surrounded by some beautiful countryside. Newhaven, with nearby Friden, has been important for its' deposits of silica and the production firebricks for centuries, otherwise there are just a few farms and cottages here.
Things to do; Close by are both the High Peak Trail and Tissington Trail, which follow the routes of former railway lines, now converted for recreational use by walkers and cyclists. Well situated for exploring the central Peak District, there are camp and caravan sites here and some good country house accommodation. There is also an unusual restaurant built to resemble luxury railway carriages. For nearest village facilities see Hartington and Youlgeave.
