It’s in Derbyshire – a mile from Tideswell and 5 miles from Buxton. Litton Village was first classed as a village in the late 18th century when there were only a few houses on the outskirts of Tideswell. All that changed when a lead mine was built near Peter’s Rock. This beautiful Peak District National Park village now houses approximately 350 people. There are two churches, a busy Red Lion pub on the village green, a school, a playground, an active village hall and a Post Office-cum-community shop that serves teas and homemade cakes. Walks from Litton are spectacular and details of them can be found in the shop.
On the A6 travelling east from Buxton, after 5 miles take the B6049 to Tideswell. Just before you reach Tideswell, a right hand turning to Litton is signposted.
Travelling west from Chesterfield or Sheffield pick up the A623 at Calver traffic lights, going north-west and after approximately 5 miles take a left turn signposted Litton.
