Glossop

4.2
Glossop is a market town in the High Peak, Derbyshire, England, about 15mi east of Manchester, 24mi west of Sheffield and 32mi north of the county town, Matlock. Glossop is near Derbyshire's county borders with Cheshire, Greater Manchester, South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. It is between 150and above mean sea level, and is a gateway to the Peak District National Park.Historically, the name Glossop refers to the small hamlet that gave its name to an ancient parish recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, and then the manor given by William I of England to William Peverel. A municipal borough was created in 1866, and the unparished urban area within two local government wards. The area now known as Glossop approximates to the villages that used to be called Glossopdale, on the lands of the Duke of Norfolk. Originally a centre of wool processing, Glossop rapidly expanded in the late 18th century when it specialised in the production and printing of calico, a coarse cotton and became a mill town with many chapels and churches, its fortunes tied to the cotton industry. Glossop is in Derbyshire. With the Inspirock world travel planner, Glossop and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
