MAYFIELD was originally a Saxon village dating back more than 1,000 years and is listed in the Domesday Book as Mavreveldt.
It can rightly claim a small niche in history too, as in 1745 Bonnie Prince Charlie terrorised the locals when his troops shot the innkeeper at the Hanging Bridge and villagers took refuge in the church, locking themselves behind the west door.
The parish is flanked to one side by the river Dove, and is generally considered to include the nearby hamlets of Middle Mayfield, Wallash and Upper Mayfield.
It’s a pretty village, with plenty on offer, including plenty of active social clubs, a pub/restaurant and the nearby market town of Ashbourne just five minutes away.
Whether it’s a traditional terraced cottage or imposing country residence, there are properties to suit every pocket in this popular country village.
What’s more, with the national Peak Park right on its doorstep, it’s a fantastic place for families wanting to escape the grime and noise of city life.
