Our Wirksworth Travel Guide includes… Places to stay, things to do and how to get to Wirksworth
The market town of Wirksworth is one of the Peak District’s oldest towns; its extensive history can be traced back to the Doomsday Book of 1086. The town attracts lovers of history and heritage, offering a wide selection of activities and plenty of opportunities to learn more about its strong industrial connections.
Adventurers will enjoy a day out exploring the caverns and walking trails of the Heights of Abraham. Take a scenic stroll along Carsington Water or perhaps take up an exhilarating water sport activity.
If you’re interested in learning more about the industrial history of the town, a day at the cotton spinning Masson Mill is a must, after which you can stroll along the banks of the River Derwent, conveniently located close by.
