Edale is a small village at the start/end of the UK's first and most famous long distance walking path, the Pennine Way.
The village itself grew from the herdsmens' shelters or 'booths' at what are now the hamlets of Upper Booth, Barber Booth, Ollerbrook Booth and Nether Booth. The central 'booth' was Grindsbrook Booth, now usually called Edale Village.
The village has two popular pubs, a café and local shop. The village has a railway station on one of England's most spectacular railway routes: the Manchester to Sheffield train line. There are two camping sites in Edale as well as others in outlying 'booths'.
Nearby is Castleton, one of the most beautifully-situated villages in the Peak District. Another beautiful village to visit in the area is Hope, where the River Noe and Peakshole Water meet, with a range of hills to the north including Win Hill and Losehill.
