Baslow Edge

Baslow Edge

Baslow Edge sits above Baslow at the eastern edge of the Peak District National Park, which is characterised by dramatic gritstone escarpments that run down from the high moors to the north.

These gritstone extensions are clearly visible from the limestone plateaux, due to the gritstone cliffs at their edges, with wild moors beyond.

The only way to Baslow Edge from Baslow is a steep uphill climb, but walkers, mountainbikers and horse riders are rewarded with stunning view across the surrounding countryside and towards the Chatsworth Estate beyond.

    Can you tell me, please, who owns the land where the Wellington Monument is situated.

    Grateful for your advice.

      Hi Clive, I would imagine it is Chatsworth, but not 100% sure.
