Ashbourne Derbyshire

Ashbourne lies at the foot of the limestone hills and next to the river meadows of the River Done. Its famous product is "Ashbourne Water", pumped from the Nestle factory well. Described as "Gateway to Dovedale", Ashbourne is a busy market town centred around a cobbled market place. The streets are lined with pleasant Goergian houses, now mostly converted into shops, the most attractive being Church Street with its antique shops. The old Grammar school with its long row of stone - mullioned windows and steep gables was founded by the Cockaynes in 1585.

Ashbourne church memorial

Across the road stands St. Oswald' church, a fine example of the Early English style and dominated by a 212' tower and spire. The white Carrara marble effigy is of Penelope Boothby, who died aged 6 in 1793 and the inscription reads; "She was in form and intellect most exquisite, the unfortunate Parents ventured their all on this frail Bark, and the wreck was total".
