A Little Bit About Grindleford
According to the Census of 2011 Grindleford Parish has a population of 909 and 389 households.
206 people (23%) of the population are over 65, and there are 37 children of pre school age, and 165 children in total.
The main settlement in the Parish is the village of Grindleford, situated in the Hope Valley, within the Peak District National Park. This is an area much visited by tourists, especially walkers, although Grindleford itself is not a well known tourist destination.
There is once again a shop in the village selling general provisions, artisan bread, curries made in the village, and plenty more. The shop also sells tea, coffee and cakes, and there is a café at the station – The Grindleford Station Cafe. There is also an art gallery and a bespoke furniture shop.
Grindleford has two popular Public Houses: The Sir William, and The Maynard.
There is also a thriving primary school.
But Grindlford is back-dropped by The Edge and has some of the best climbing in the country. The Edge runs four miles north from the Cowper Stone to Stanage End. It is the northernmost of an almost continuous line of cliffs, including Burbage Rocks, Froggatt Edge, Curbar Edge, Baslow Edge and Birchen Edge.
Grindleford is of course located in the Peak District and is home to amazing walking routes and stunning natural scenery. Padley Gorge is an ancient oak woodland. It is situated between Grindleford and the Longshaw Estate. Burbage Brook is the largest water course running through Longshaw and has cut into the main valley side to create Padley Gorge. Its source is 1,400ft (427m) up on the Hathersage and Burbage Moors.
