About Bonsall - Bonsall dates back to Roman times and was settled at the time by lead miners. Agriculture took over and there are still several working farms, a wonderful plant centre, an excellent primary school, two popular public houses, a good playground and more recently a popular deli/small grocery shop and cafe opened. The surrounding countryside is simply stunning. Uppertown is located just above Bonsall but within a few minutes easy walking distance of the village centre.

For commuters, the village is a stones throw from Matlock and Wirksworth, the former providing access to the rail network to Derby which is a national hub. Trains run from Derby to London taking approximately 1.5 hours. Sheffield is within easy driving distance, whilst Nottingham, Derby and Chesterfield are also popular commutes in this area. Facilities beyond Bonsall include extensive independent shops in both Matlock and Wirksworth and a large Sainsburys and M&S in Matlock.
