Winster

About

4 miles west of Matlock, Winster was once a busy place with its' own market and prosperous lead mining industry.
A very interesting old village hidden up in the limestone hills and surrounded by glorious scenery.
Historically, Winster was a main crossing point for many roads and trackways, one of the most important being The Portway, an ancient trading route that passes close to the village. Salt routes from Cheshire came through the village, as did the main turnpike from Nottingham to Newhaven in later years.

With more than 70 listed buildings, foremost being the Old Market Hall, dating from the 17th century, together with The Old Hall and Dower House, and a designated conservation area, the village has one of the most impressive street scenes in the area and the main street is an array of impressive buildings which merge with a jumble of cottages up the bank on the southern side. foremost being the Old Market Hall, dating from the 17th century, together with The Old Hall and Dower House.

Things to do; The village has a close-knit community spirit and upholds some ancient traditions. There are pancake races on Shrove Tuesday and groups of Morris Men and "Guisers" perform at various local events. There are also annual Well Dressings, a Carnival and open garden days. The National Trust owns the Old Market Hall. There is a fine old inn, The Bowling Green in the village and another pub, The Miners Standard a short distance away on the road to Grangemill. The Limestone Way footpath passes close by and there are good routes all around for ramblers.
