Found in Derbyshire, Glossop is a market town which is less than twenty five miles away from Manchester. Its name derives from a small hamlet which is in the Domesday Book and modern-day Glossop is made up of two villages after it expanded when it started to manufacture cotton.
Glossop has many natural attractions, such as Shelf Brook which is situated in a valley which was formerly used by the Romans as a road. Glossop is also close to the Peak National Park and its economy benefits from the many visitors who travel through on their way there.
There are good transport links in Glossop. The A57 road runs through it and Glossop also has a railway station as well. Enjoying Glossop's natural wonders doesn't require much travelling time, especially as regular train journeys pass through to Manchester Piccadilly.
