Grindlow, Derbyshire

Grindlow is a very small farming village of a dozen or so houses, that nestles under Hucklow Edge in the Derbyshire Peak District. Whilst it is a separate civil parish in the Derbyshire Dales District, the Parish Council is joint with Great Hucklow, its near neighbour and Little Hucklow. The village lies north of the A623 road as it crosses Wardlow Mires. It is a familiar stop for groups of walkers passing through from Foolow, Wardlow and Abney.
