Add Tideswell to your Itinerary



A large, well appointed village set in the limestone uplands near Buxton, Tideswell has some fine old buildings and a remarkable church.

Tideswell is a thriving community offering much more than first meets the eye. The magnificent church of St John the Baptist is with justification known as the "Cathedral of the Peak", built entirely in the 14th century, it contains some notable monuments, brasses and woodcarvings. Tideswell was once important for its' markets and was also a centre for a variety of local industries including quarrying, lead mining, cotton and velvet mills. Today it continues to be a focal point for surrounding communities with a small industrial estate, craftwork, furniture and piano manufacture providing employment. Set in wonderful walking country, Tideswell makes an excellent base and is a good place for a refreshment stop in one of the traditional village pubs or cafes.

Things to do; Each May, Tideswell Food Festival is held with an array of demonstations, stalls, entertainment and of course food! Well Dressings and Wakes Week are held in late June to early July. There is a fine musical tradition and the Male Voice Choir, Silver Band and other local societies hold regular concerts in the church. At the southern end of the village is Tideswell Dale, where there is a nature reserve with car park, toilets and a picnic area featuring a delightful sculpture trail. There are excellent sports and recreational facilities in the village.

You can find out more information about Tideswell and district at and keep informed about what's on in the area by following @visittideswell on There is a small Tourist Information point in the Vanilla Kitchen café where you can pick up leaflets and find out about events in the area.

Little Hucklow is a small hamlet in a fold of the scenic limestone uplands north of Tideswell.A pretty little spot, just a few farms and cottages surrounded by fields that show remnants of former lead mining days. There are fabulous views over to Bradwell Edge and Bretton, where the gliders at the Derbyshire and Lancashire Gliding Club take to the air. It is a peaceful place, off the main road but handily placed for touring the wider Peak District.

Things to do; There are some good walks in the area and the tourist attractions of the Buxton, the Hope Valley and Castleton are not far away.
