south-west corner of the Peak District is in Staffordshire. A somewhat
under-rated part of the national park, it does contain
of it's most fascinating features including some interesting mines, a
variety of caves and the highest village in the United
Kingdom. Dovedale forms the boundary with Derbyshire and nearby is the lovely Manifold Valley which has it's sense of
remoteness in spite of not being far from some of England's major centres of population. Interesting pubs here include the Yew
Tree at Cauldon Lowe with it's fascinating collection of antiquities and the Winking Man where a good night can be guaranteed.
To the south runs the Cauldon Canal, a branch of the Trent & Mersey Canal which has it's own points of interest.
