Description:
Grindleford is a village and parish in the county of Derbyshire, in the East Midlands of England. It lies at an altitude of 150 metres in the valley of the River Derwent in the Peak District National Park.

Grindleford became a parish in 1987, merging the parishes of Eyam Woodlands, Stoke, Nether Padley and Upper Padley.

The nearest city to Grindleford is Sheffield, the centre of which is about seven miles away.

Visitors seeking refreshment are well catered for by a number of establishments, including the Sir William Hotel, the Maynard Hotel and Bar, the National Trust Longshaw...
