Brassington

Distance: 7 miles from the Park.

An attractive limestone village, set on a hillside with winding little streets, Brassington is in a remote corner of Derbyshire. The rough ground to the east, west and north of the village has the hillocks and hollows of hundreds of abandoned mines. There are many strange rock formations round the village at Rainster Rocks and Hipley Hill.

The characterful Miner’s Arms is an ideal starting point for walking in the area, or a stop off for visiting nearby Carsington Water.
