There is much information about this area on the worldwide web:-

Dovedale is a beautiful valley with much wildlife; try avoiding weekends if you can, it is more rewarding. A visit to Tissington Hall is a must if you have the time, details of opening hours are on the website above. We did this walk in early December and saw herons and dippers, a real treat.

As mentioned in the route, Tissington can be missed, but I would recommend a visit, especially to the Old Coach House Tea Rooms.

The history of Tissington can be traced back as far as 1086, when it is mentioned as Tizinctun in the Domesday Book among the possessions of Henry de Ferrers. Evidence of even earlier occupation of the area is amply afforded by the results of escavations in the neighbourhood, which have disclosed Bronze Age human remains, Anglo Saxon burials and earlier Celtic remains. In 1259, the Tissington Estate passed to the Meynell family and then to the FitzHerberts, who have held it for the best part of 500 years. Over this time, a fascinating collection of historial records have been built up about the area and the family.
