Derbyshire lies in the East Midlands of England surrounded by Greater Manchester to the northwest, West Yorkshire to the north, South Yorkshire to the northeast, Nottinghamshire to the east, Leicestershire to the southeast, Staffordshire to the west and southwest and Cheshire to the west. It’s an area with a lot of outstanding natural beauty. A large part of the Peak District National Park lies within the county and the southern extremity of the Pennine range of hills extends into the north of the county.
Derbyshire has been a site of human habitation since the Stone Age. The lead ore that could be found in the county’s limestone hills brought the Romans. Later, during the Industrial Revolution, water mills made use of the fast flowing rivers and brought workers flooding to the county town of Derby.
