The village of Elton stands on the hillside of the White Peak plateau, and has views of Youlgreave and Stanton-in-the-Peak. Remains of the lead mining industry in and around the surrounding area still feature in the village.

There are also the remains of a prehistoric fort, Castle Ring, on the nearby Harthill Moor. A popular village with walkers due to its location.
