A Visit to Parwich
The beautiful little village of Parwich lies in the Derbyshire hills on the southern edge of the Peak District. It’s surrounded by wonderful countryside and walking along the village lanes is like stepping back in time, with quaint stone cottages on quiet streets and a stream running through the centre of the village. No wonder that The Sunday Times named it ‘one of the best places to live in Britain’ in 2015.
A rich farming village in the Georgian era, and there are many buildings from that period still surviving within the village today. Parwich Hall is a perfect example, built in 1747. It occupies a commanding position overlooking the village, with a beautiful red brick facade, unusual in an area made up of limestone houses.
The village today has a lively, thriving community, with a school, a Royal British Legion club, a lovely children’s playground and various sporting clubs. The cosy country pub The Sycamore Inn dates back to the 17th Century and also houses the local village shop.
This is wonderful walking country and the lovely traffic-free trails of the High Peak Trail and the Tissington Trail both pass close to the village. It’s also on the route of the Limestone Way, the long distance footpath that stretches for 46 miles between Castleton and Rocester, and the Peak District Boundary Walk.
