Dimmingsdale’s History

Dimmingsdale was once a scene of industrial squalor where smelters extracted iron and lead ore from rocks mined in the Peak District. However, by the 1800’s the smelting trade was dead.

It was around this time that the Earl of Shrewsbury chose to transform Dimmingsdale into his own personal country paradise thus creating this glorious valley.

And now the Forestry Commission has turned an aristocrat’s dream into a delight for all to enjoy, by creating a range of walks throughout this tranquil valley.
