HayfieldHayfield is an attractive stone-built village on the River Sett. It lies close to Kinder Scout, the moorland plateau that includes the highest point in Derbyshire (636m). Hayfield is surrounded by the Peak District National Park and was the site of the Mass Trespass of Kinder Scout in 1932, a key moment in the history of rights of way in the United Kingdom. Hayfield was the filming location for many of the village scenes in the BBC TV series The Village.
Hayfield lies directly on the route of the Pennine Bridleway and within a few miles of the Pennine Way. The Sett Valley Trail is a 2½-mile rail trail, accessible to horse-riders and cyclists as well as walkers. Other possible destinations for shorter day walks include Kinder Reservoir, Lantern Pike or Edale Cross/South Head. Easy strolls with mild gradients may be had westwards from the village along the Sett Valley Trail to Bluebell Wood Nature Reserve and beyond, or upstream along the River Sett towards Bowden Bridge. The Calico Trail is a recently conceived short walk around the village, visiting sites associated with the local calico-printing industry; leaflets are available from local outlets.
