A large, well appointed village set in the limestone uplands near Buxton, Tideswell has some fine old buildings and a remarkable church.
Tideswell is a thriving community offering much more than first meets the eye. The magnificent church of St John the Baptist is with justification known as the "Cathedral of the Peak", built entirely in the 14th century, it contains some notable monuments, brasses and woodcarvings. Tideswell was once important for its' markets and was also a centre for a variety of local industries including quarrying, lead mining, cotton and velvet mills. Today it continues to be a focal point for surrounding communities with a small industrial estate, craftwork, furniture and piano manufacture providing employment. Set in wonderful walking country, Tideswell makes an excellent base and is a good place for a refreshment stop in one of the traditional village pubs or cafes.
