Tideswell is very close to Litton Mill. Take the Litton Mill Road and turn right on the B6049 at Millers Dale – Tideswell is just a couple of miles along the road. It is located just off the A623 and six miles from Buxton.
The town is one of the most ancient settlements in the central Peak District and was granted a charter for a market in 1251 – these were held regularly until relatively recently. It was the site of the ‘Great Courts’ of the Royal Forest of the Peak in the time of Edward I and a few of the buildings along the main street have foundations which date from this period. However the major feature from the medieval era is the magnificent 14th-century church, known locally as ‘The Cathedral of the Peak’.
The town is located in the the National Park and has a great range of shops and crafts, and eating and drinking options. These include:
Cafes and Tea Rooms (High Nelly’s, The Dairy Parlour, HnDs Exotic Teas)
Studios and Crafts
Community Shop and Co-op Shop
Take Away Food Stores (Hnd’s Bistro, Stella’s Kitchen, Hope Valley Pizza, Little India and the Curry Cabin)
Fish and Chip Stores
and seven food-serving pubs – The Horse and Jockey, The Star, The George, The Anchor, The Red Lion, The Anglers Rest and The Queen Anne – check for food serving times.
