Thorpe is at the southern end of the Peak District National Park almost at the foot of Thorpe Cloud, and is an excellent base for exploring Dovedale and the Manifold Valley.
The word Thorpe originates from the scandinavian word for an outlying farm or hamlet.
Some scenes Ridley Scott’s film Robin Hood was shot at Thorpe Pastures.
This shot was taken at Thorpe pastures looking over Thorpe Cloud towards Staffordshire.
