Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Peak District National Park / Hope Valley / Hathersage / Stanage Edge
Stanage Edge, or simply Stanage (from "stone edge") is a gritstone escarpment in the Peak District, England, famous as a location for climbing. It lies a couple of miles to the north of Hathersage, and the northern part of the edge forms the border between the High Peak of Derbyshire and Sheffield in South Yorkshire. Its highest point is High Neb at 458 metres (1,503 ft) above sea level. Areas of Stanage were quarried in the past to produce grindstones, and some can still be seen on the hillside—carved, but never removed.Put Stanage Edge and other Hathersage attractions into our Hathersage trip itinerary planning website, and watch your holiday take shape.
