Edale is also known to many as being the start or end point of Britain’s most famous long distance hiking trail, the Pennine Way. The village itself is small but perfectly formed, with lanes of pretty stone cottages, two very popular pubs, a couple of cafes, and a number of campsites.
The parish church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity, built in 1885, enjoys a beautiful setting in the central hamlet of the village of Edale known as Grindsbrook booth. It was built using local stone brought down from the hillside along sled tracks which are still visible today.
The hamlets, known as booths, that make up this area, include Upper Booth, Barber Booth, Nether Booth, Lady booth, Mill cottages and Grindsbrook Booth.
Prior to the construction of the current church, there was a small church across the lane, and and the old font can still be seen in the churchyard there. In times gone by, the dead had to be carried across the hill to Castleton to be buried in the churchyard there.
“Booths” were originally established in the 13th Century as cattle farms and grew along the Packhorse routes that ran along the valley from Cheshire.
According to history, the valley was a dangerous and wild terrain with bears and wolves, but as the farmsteads grew, and trees were cleared the area became a safer place to be.
When the train line that linked Sheffield to Manchester was opened in 1894, the railway station close to Grindsbrook Booth was renamed Edale, and the name came to be used for all the settlements in this area.
Every piece we create tells a story and fades into white, leaving the viewer with the impression of a world outside the scene, and a story yet to be told. In fact every piece comes to you with a story about it with an accompanying card with your wall art or on the reverse of the greetings card.
Each print takes many hours to produce, using layers, masks, overlay, textures and creative techniques to produce a fine art piece you will be proud to have in your home. We do not use automated processes of any sort.
