Stoney Middleton is a quaint English village set in the beautiful limestone countryside of the Peak District National Park. It has a long and colourful history that has left us with a rich heritage.
We will soon be opening a new visitor centre. An exciting multi-sensory exhibition where you can learn about the rich and diverse history of Stoney Middleton.
There’s plenty to see and do in and around Stoney Middleton. Activities range from short heritage trails around the village, birdwatching and nature trails to more energetic walks, climbing, caving, and mountain biking.
Our village has some beautiful listed buildings such as St. Martin’s church, the Bathhouse, and the locally famous octagonal Toll House.
Stoney Middleton was first settled by Ancient Britons around 4,000 BC who may have been drawn by the thermal waters which flow through the village today.
Activities range from short heritage trails around the village, to more energetic pursuits like mountain biking.
Those looking for longer Peak District walks should try a hike up Coombs Dale which is home to a wide range of rare plants and animals.
Visit the lagoons on Stoney Middleton moor where you can watch rare birds. It is one of the best places in the country to witness huge flocks of starlings performing their spectacular aerial acrobatics.
Middleton Dale is well known for its caving and rock climbing opportunities. The village is a centre for outdoor pursuits training, so if you feel the urge to learn a new skill we can cater for that too.
