The Beautiful area of Elton, in the Peak District National Park
Elton is situated in the heart of the Peak District National Park, on a hillside overlooking a rock formation known as Robin Hood’s Stride. It lies on the division between gritstone and limestone countryside, known as the White and Dark Peak District Areas, and therefore spoilt for choice of where to visit first. There are actually examples of buildings and walls constructed with both types of stone in the village. It is a popular destination for cyclists and tourists looking for a quiet and relaxing time in the countryside away from the hustle and bustle of the towns and cities in this country and visits from all over the world.
Elton has numerous music festivals throughout the summer term and a beer festival during August, which are held on the ‘Jubilee Field’ (known to villagers as ‘The Thistle’). There is a pub in the village and many more nearby.
