Living in Baslow: The Local Area Guide

Baslow is a village located in the rolling hills of the Peak District at the heart of England. The village has three main sections; Bridge End is considered the original settlement and towards the north is Over End which is where Baslow Hall can be found. Finally Nether End is located further south by Chatsworth Park and is where the modern centre of Baslow lies.

Chatsworth Park, 8 minutes from central Baslow, is a huge visitor attraction that consists of a large and well preserved stately home. It stands upon a vastly diverse stretch of green, dotted with parkland, woodland and gardens. This impressive building was started by Sir William Cavendish, who purchased the estate of Chatsworth in 1549. It was his wife, Bess of Hardwick, who completed Chatsworth House in 1557 after the death of Sir William.

Another historical point of interest for visitors and residents of Baslow is the Old Bridge, otherwise known as Bubnell Bridge. This feature was built in 1603 and its resilient stone arches are still standing today, making this the only bridge across the river that has never been destroyed by flooding. There is a nearby wooden hut that is a former toll house where, back in the day, watchmen would stand guard and make sure that the former bridge was never too overcrowded.

Demographics

Baslow is part of the Parish of Baslow and Bubnell, which as of 2011 has a population of 1,178.
