The village of Brassington lies in England's Peak District National Park in Derbyshire. The village once was at the heart of the lead mining industry, but now is a quiet retreat for locals and those who work in the nearby larger towns and cities. Relatively isolated and surrounded by farmland, Brassington is an ideal spot to get away from the stresses and strains of modern life.

Lying around 800 feet above sea level on a south facing hillside, the village consists largely of grey stone cottages dating back as far as the 17th century. One of the oldest buildings is Tudor House, which was built in 1615. The village has several pubs which offer a warm welcome to visitors as well as a post office which was converted from a former toll house.

Unusual and interesting rock formations are found at Hipley Hill and Rainster Rocks which lie above the village. Here too are pleasant picnic spots and expansive views. An ideal place for a holiday.

The Peak District offers wonderful scenery, ideal for photography. The colours of the villages, towns, dales, hills and rivers seem to change with the light and with the seasons. The area attracts walkers and cyclists as roads are often fairly free of traffic. The High Peak Trail, a popular walk, lies just to the north of the village. The Peak District's scenery is charming with undulating countryside and small villages each offering something unique by way of architecture or food and drink.
