Litton has everything which you would hope for from a small traditional Peak District Village.
The Red Lion pub, school, village community shop and Post Office all sit around the village green, complete with stocks and village cross. Just the place to sit and watch the world go by on one of the many wooden benches. For the more adventurous, the newly refurbished playground and sensory garden offers both young and old a lovely space to play and relax.
Just a short walk away is the larger village of Tideswell, which has a small supermarket, along with a selection of independent local shops, cafes and pubs. The parish church of St John The Baptist is widely known as the “Cathedral of the Peak”.
Just across our fields is the stunning Cressbrook Dale, a must for walkers and naturalists. The dale is famous for its flora and fauna which includes early purple orchids which carpet the dale sides in late May/early June, cowslips, water voles, brown hares and ravens which nest in Ravensdale. Peters Stone (or Gibbet Rock as it is known locally), is the large limestone boulder which stands proud at the north end of the dale.
