At over 1,000 feet, Chelmorton in the White Peak area of Derbyshire occupies one of the highest village locations in England. The Village is famous for it’s preserved field system whereby villagers were allocated ‘strips’ within open fields. These are still in evidence, although today enclosed by iconic Derbyshire drystone walls.
