Hope, Derbyshire

Hope is a village in the Derbyshire Peak District, in England. It lies in the Hope Valley, at the point where Peakshole Water flows into the River Noe. To the north, Win Hill and Lose Hill stand either side of the Noe. Traces of a Roman fort can be found in the hamlet of Brough-on-Noe, just east of the village. Its Roman name was Navio, and was later renamed with the Old English word for fort, brough. Edward the Elder granted lands at Hope to Uhtred, son of Eadulf of Bamburgh.
