Scenic Millers Dale is situated on the River Wye between Buxton and Tideswell, in the White Peak area of the Peak District National Park. A Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) it is managed by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.
The local landmark is the viaduct, built by the Midland Railway in 1866. Millers Dale railway station was at the junction where passengers for Buxton joined or left the trains between London and Manchester.
The hamlet of Litton Mill is situated on the River Wye. The mill was built in the late eighteenth century but was destroyed by fire in 1897 and was later rebuilt. The mill became infamous for its harsh treatment of its young labour force, many of whom were orphans, which may have provided the inspiration for Charles Dickens novel 'Oliver Twist'. The village inn, the ivy clad Angler's Rest has been a public house since 1753.
Ravenstor, near Litton Mill, is a overhanging limestone cliff which is a popular location with rock climbers.
The Monsal Trail long distance footpath runs the length of the dale. There are foot bridges at either end of the dale allowing access to car parks. There are a number of highly attractive walks in the area.
