Ashover Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Derbyshire...

Nestling among rolling hills, Ashover’s homes are brown and cosy. This was once a centre for lead mining but its name refers to the ash trees which help to guard the slopes leading to the local moors. All Saints’ Church has an unusual lead font, dating from around 1200, which is decorated with pictures of the Apostles.
