Location

Middleton, England, United Kingdom

Middleton-by-Wirksworth is an upland village lying 1000ft+ above sea level approximately one mile from Wirksworth, Derbyshire, formerly known for its lead mines and high quality limestone quarries, including the underground quarry site at Middleton Mine. The Middleton Mine networks underground for approximately 25 miles with tunnels on three different levels running under Middleton Moor to the Hopton Wood.

Middleton formed originally in the Saxon times as a small farming hamlet which settled around a very high spring.

The former Cromford and High Peak Railway passes through the bottom of the village. The local quarries were linked to this line by a short branch spur, Killer's Branch, part of which now forms the track bed of the Steeple Grange Light Railway. This runs during the summer months at weekends and bank holidays.

In the 1970s, the disused track bed of the Cromford and High Peak Railway and some surrounding land were purchased by the Derbyshire County Council and the Peak Park Planning Board, who then worked collaboratively to turn the former railway into the 17-mile High Peak Trail for walkers and cyclists. Middleton Top lies near the southern end of the trail, which starts at High Peak Junction. There is a car park and visitor centre at Middleton Top, where cycles may be hired.

Middleton Top Engine House houses a preserved steam engine formerly used to haul trains up the 700-yard (640 m) long 1-in-8 (12.5%) gradient of Middleton Incline.

Rod and I have lived in Middleton with since Nov 2016 after we moved from Cambridge. I love having my family and friends visit. My grandchildren and I now enjoy long walks, cooking, arts and crafts and looking after our allotment. Chatsworth has one of my favourite gardens, but always finding new and beautiful places to visit. love most genres of music, and really loving the musical community in our village. I believe life is not about the amount of breaths you take. It's the moments that take your breath away.

If you require some further information on the surrounding area, we are happy to help, as we work from home. We have left local attraction leaflets in the apartment to give you a guide, along with selection of books on the area.

We are sure you'll love are little village as much as we do.

There is a local co-op at the bottom of the Hill going into Wirksworth which you can get everything you need for your stay regarding food etc. Its within a 5 minute drive down the hill or 25 mins walking normally taking in the stunning views. The same town has an array of independent shops which you can get fresh bread, meat etc covering everything your need.

We supply some complimentary tea, coffee and sugar so you can sit down and relax and have a drink straight away upon arrival. On some occasions you may have some home baked treats awaiting you too.
