Ashford in the Water
Ashford in the Water is situated on the banks of the River Wye, just 2 miles upstream of Bakewell, Derbyshire, on the A6 trunk road which links Bakewell and Buxton. It is in the very centre of the Peak District National Park.
The village itself has a number of points of interest for the visitor, including the church which has features dating back to Norman times. There are two ancient bridges across the river - the older of these, Sheepwash Bridge (shown opposite), is a medieval packhorse bridge close to the site of the original ford.
It gains its name from the practice of bringing sheep to wash them before shearing - this was continued locally until the 1960s and is demonstrated annually during Well Dressing week.
