Edale

Our most popular Freshwalks destination, rural Edale is a small village at the start of the UK's first and most famous long-distance walking path, the Pennine Way.

Edale is a pretty Derbyshire village situated in a valley in the heart of the Peak District National Park. The village itself grew from a collection of shelters used by herdsmen when tending their sheep on the hillsides. These shelters, or ‘booths’, led to the formation of hamlets: Barber Booth, Ollerbrook Booth, Upper Booth and Nether Booth. The fifth and largest booth, Grindbrook Booth, is what we now call Edale Village.

The picturesque village of Edale has plentiful walking routes in wonderful settings. Mam Tor is one of the most popular walking destinations as visitors are rewarded with a view that stretches over the Edale Valley, to Kinder Scout and the Derwent Moors. The walk continues to the appropriately-named Great Ridge which overlooks Hope Valley. A day in Edale is only complete with a visit to one of its cosy pubs and a train ride home on one of the UK’s most specular railway routes: the Manchester to Sheffield line.
