Wirksworth

Wirksworth is the nearest town to the farm. It’s a lovely little old market town with a variety of shops, a few restaurants and plenty of pubs.

It’s about ten minutes drive down the hill, or you can walk down in about 30 minutes.

Market day is on Tuesday, and there’s a local Farmer’s Market on the first Saturday of every month.

Pubs

There are about eight pubs in Wirksworth. Everyone has their own favourite, so you’ll probably find one that suits you too.

The walk back from Wirksworth is great fun when stumbling back from the pub!
