Alfreton attractions

AlfretonAlfreton lies in Derbyshire, a county associated with the Peak District (as well as parts of Staffordshire, Yorkshire and Cheshire), while the northern part of the county overlaps into the Pennines. Wedged in between Manchester, Sheffield and Derby, the landscape comes in two forms with the harsh grey gritstone of the Dark Peak contrasting with the pale southern limestone hills of the White Peak. Here the deep-forested dales are populated with small stone villages, walking trails along former railway routes, complex cave systems and spectacular historic country houses, the seats of the Dukes of Devonshire and Rutland.
