A pleasant market town that lies towards the southern end of the Peak District and is the gateway to Dovedale and the Izaak Walton country.

Famous for the annual Shrovetide football game held on Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, attracts big crowds every year. Ashbourne has the church of St. Oswald, decribed by George Elliot as 'the finest mere parish church in the Kingdom'. It is a magnificant cruciform building with a 212 foot-high spire. The church contains the tomb of Robert de Kinveton (d.1741) and displays fine examples of stained glass windows and monuments.
