The Peak District and Surrounding Area

The attractive village of Wetton stands amidst rolling hills, rocky outrcops, undulating valleys and farmland above the glorious Manifold Valley. The walking from your doorstep offers amazing variety; either steady strolls along the disused route of the former Leek and Manifold Light Railway or more strenuous hikes taking in some of the surrounding hidden valleys, woods, hills and limestone tors.  The most famous sight, a short walk from the village heart, is the impressive Thor’s Cave; high up on the hillside, it towers above the valley and its 60 ft high entrance lures you in to explore.  Below is Wetton Mill, a former corn mill now owned by the National Trust - the tea rooms here is a lovely spot to stop and enjoy the scenery beside the River Manifold.
Wetton is located approximately half-way between Butterton and Alstonefield, each being around two-and-a-half miles away, and there are lovely walks leading to them both; once there you will discover excellent watering holes, for in Butterton there is The Black Lion, and in Alstonefield, The George. Hartington and Dovedale are both 5 miles away and Ashbourne 10 miles drive.
