Location

Middleton, England, United Kingdom

Middleton-by-Wirksworth is an upland village lying approximately one mile of 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.

Me and Rod 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.
