The heritage trails of Stoney Middleton are two walks in and around the beautiful quaint historic village of Stoney Middleton, you will discover its hidden secrets, industrial past and the stunning sounding scenery. This is the purple walk which highlights the heritage of Stoney middleton. It can be combined with the green walk to neighbouring Eyam to make a longer walk.

The romans mined for lead and until recent times mining and quarrying provided vital minerals to the world. The village is famous for its boot making industry, home to the invention of steel toe capped boot and today the last remaining safety boot manufacturer in Britain.

There is a rare Victorian Bath House - fed by thermal springs and featured by BBC’s Countryfile for its national importance. The beautiful quaint and picturesque church of St Martin has the oldest of the only two octagonal naves in Britain. A Toll house of the same shape graces the village centre and looks to the legendary Lovers Leap, from which jilted lover Hannah Baddaley leapt in 1762, but miraculously survived. The same rocks on which rock climbers, established some of the hardest climbs in the world in the dale during the 1960s and 1970s, the rocks form stunning shear limestone crags which line the dale, whist at the feet extensive caving systems.

ITV’s Most Haunted: Midsummer Murders investigated the hauntings of The Moon Inn where the Scottish peddler was murdered, while the landlord turned a blind eye. Perhaps, why the pub remains haunted to this day.

The Great Plague of 1665 struck the neighbouring of Eyam which become known as the 'plague village' due to the decision made by the whole village to quarantine itself. They allowed no one in or out during the fourteen months that the plague took hold, their survival due to the villages of Stoney Middleton who left food at the Boundary Stone. The stone has six holes drilled into its surface. money soaked in vinegar (believed to kill the infection) was placed in exchange for supplies.

The trail out of the village up Black Harry Hill takes the walker into the world of the infamous highwayman of the same name. He terrorised travels who were forced to take the then treacherous trails across these remote and inhospitable moors.

Stoney Middleton Visitor and Heritage Centre due to open in 2018, is to be built to reflect the former lead smelting cupola where it once stood. It tells the village story and offers food from the Bakehouse and its wood cooked oven.
