Throwback Travel Thursday – Stanage Edge

Who loves a little bit of Jane Austen in their life?!! πŸ™‹πŸΌ When I started planning our UK trip in more detail I knew we had to fit in a homage to Jane Austen somewhere in the mix. A little research turned up a massive list of places you could visit; places from the books and all different filming locations from the many movies. One of my ‘must-sees’ was Stanage Edge in the Peak District.

This area was the cliff face that Lizzie stands on with a billowing skirt to overlook the countryside in the 2005 Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightly. You know, this scene.

There are a number of hikes/walking paths that you could take and I spent a lot of time researching the length of the walk and where would be the best place to start our little hike from. Some only 30 min while others took all day.

  • Location: Ringinglow Road, Hathersage, Derbyshire, S32 1BR
  • Cost: Free
  • Parking: We managed to find a car park quite close to one of the cliff faces but I’m not positive what it was called. In my research there is a Hook Car parking lot which allows for a 2 hour walk

We reached the top of the cliffs in no time at all.  But boy was it windy!! You had to lean into the wind so you didn’t fall over and all the videos I took from the top you couldn’t hear a thing I was saying due to the wind! The views where stunning and even though it was really overcast where we were, we could still see the sunlight shining over other parts of the district.
