Local Area Info


Derbyshire is situated in the north midlands of England, bordered in the north-west by Cheshire, in the north by Yorkshire, in the east by Nottinghamshire, in the south by Leicestershire, in the west by Staffordshire.

Derby is by far the largest town in the county. Other towns of some importance are Alfreton, Ashbourne, Bakewell, Belper, Buxton, Chesterfield, Glossop, Heanor, Ilkeston, Long Eaton and Matlock.

Derbyshire is a brilliant place to live, work, play and visit. Its towns, villages, hills, dales and rivers, offer beautiful scenery, and a rich variety of customs that date back from time immemorial. In Derbyshire you find large country houses, like Chatsworth, Kedleston and Haddon, towns and villages associated with famous people or rare minerals, and crystal clear rivers and streams running through its valleys and dales.

Derbyshire caters for nearly every kind of sport, from rock climbing and pot holing to fly fishing and canoeing on waters surrounded by beautiful scenery. Derbyshire today is perhaps best known for the Peak District National Park.
