Bamford Village lies within the Peak District National Park, 11 miles west of Sheffield and 25 miles east of Manchester. It is surrounded by high moorland; to the north are the Gritstone edges of Derwent and Bamford, and to the west lies the peak of Win Hill. The river Derwent flows through the village. Bamford has an interesting history.
