The local area guide to living in Baslow

Baslow, located along the Derwent Valley in the Peak District is an attractive village set into three parts. Nether End is the current centre of the village, towards the north is Over End, and Bridge End is the area that occupied Baslow’s original setting. Just south of this picturesque village is Chatsworth Hall and Park; a 16th century stately home immersed in acres of beautiful parkland and woodland, which now welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors yearly. Baslow also has a collection of timely thatched cottages as well as a famous 17th century bridge and toll house, which gives residents and visitors a sense of the village’s interesting history.

Baslow offers some beautiful walks and trails, along the Derwent Valley. The circular Baslow Edge Trail takes hikers towards Wellington’s Monument - a monument built to commemorate the Duke of Wellington that balances Nelson’s Monument found on Birchen Edge about a mile away. Then walkers can lead to Eagle Stone, which used to be climbed by local men in order to prove their marital suitability. After this, you are led along the Baslow Edge and eventually back to where you started. This is a great weekend stroll as it is only about five miles and allows people to take in the wonderful views and landscapes.

The village has a few inviting countryside pubs that provide a true Derbyshire Experience. The Devonshire Arms has overnight accommodation that serves hearty food and drinks, and can be found at the edge of Chatsworth Park. The Rutland Arms is next to the River Derwent and offers great surroundings.
