Geocache Description:

Up an unmarked lane, muddy in wet weather

Hartington, situated in Derbyshire and the Peak District National Park, was an important market centre in the middle ages, having been granted a market charter in 1203, and though it has been many years since a market has been held in its large square, Hartington still retains an air of prosperity. The stone carved village pump survives on the green and was an important source of water before piped supplies were bought to the village.

Hartington is situated in an ancient and man made landscape, criss crossed by stone walls and patterned with trees, planted in rows, groups and plantations to provide shelter from the winds that sweep across the plateau. These shelterbelts were often planted along old lead workings, where dangerous shafts and poisoned ground made the land unsuitable for anything else.
Charles Cotton was born at nearby Beresford Hall and there is a pub named after him, in the village square. He introduced Issac Walton to the Peak District and together they wrote `The Complete Angler` a sort of fishermans bible.
Hartington Hall, now a youth hostel is a lovely tudor manor house built by Robert Bateman in 1611 and Bonnie Prince Charles is thought to have stayed there on his ill fated mission in 1745. Today it is one of the most popular youth hostels in Derbyshire, with thousands of quests every year. Its restaurant and bar are open to the general public and prides itself in serving locally sourced produce. The bar stocks local ales brewed at the Leatherbritches Brewery in Fenny Bentley and Whim Ales in Hartington itself. Whim Ales has been brewing real ale for the last 12 years. Its popular Hartington Bitter, Hartington IPA, Arbor Light and seasonal varieties are on sale across the East Midlands and at in the 2 former village coaching inns, The Charles Cotton and the Devonshire Arms.

The church stands above the market square and has an attractive 5 light window in its south transept. The tower is Perpendicular with battlements and crocketed pinnacles and stands at the west of the building. If you park in the village to get to the cache you will pass the church.

If you are after this cache on a Sunday, check out the nearby village hall, they often have craft and gift fairs running. If you call in ask the kitchen staff if Daryl is around. They'll point me out and we can have a natter about geocaching.

Please make sure the cache put back in position and camoflaged from anyone going up the lane.

I have named this cache No Cheese Here as unfortunately the famous cheese factory has recently closed down.
