873 Rowsley

Anyone who's a shopaholic can have a treat at Peak Village, but walkers will love the woods above Rowsley where Spring brings golden celandines, wood anemones and bluebells, while Beeley is a picture book delight. You might even have a ride on a steam train to finish off a grand day out.
