Fifteen minutes’ walk away is the large village of Tideswell, which has more of everything, as well as a beautiful medieval church known locally as ‘The Cathedral of the Peak’.
Litton is situated in the limestone White Peak, with a wide choice of walks literally on the doorstep. Cressbrook Dale, for example, can be reached in ten minutes (five for children). To see its flowers at their best, visit in May or June, but it is unmissable at any time of year.
The gritstone Dark Peak is also only a short car drive away. Castleton and Mam Tor offer a different and wilder scenery.
