TADDINGTON DALE, A PLACE OF QUIET BEAUTY AT THE DOOR OF A DERBYSHIRE MINING VILLAGE

TADDINGTON DALE, A PLACE OF QUIET BEAUTY AT THE DOOR OF A DERBYSHIRE MINING VILLAGE

More than one good road out of Manchester leads to the Peak District. To reach Taddington Dale one must forsake the course of the Derbyshire Wye and climb upwards in the direction of Taddington village, one of the most elevated in all England. Taddington is a straggling mining village, but the dale which takes its name shows little sign of contamination; it. is as unspoilt a solitude as any in the Peak country. On the high road from Buxton to Bakevvell, rich in its Saxon relics and more intimate memories of the Vernons, Taddington and its dale are expeditiously reached and are well worth reaching, though the beauties of the dale cannot challenge comparison with the mysterious lure of Dovedale.
