Anselm’s Prep school and College. The market town of Bakewell is a short drive away with its more extensive shopping and recreational facilities. The larger conurbations of Sheffield and Chesterfield are with easy reach with their good transport links to the rest of the country including trains to London from Chesterfield from 1 hr 50 mins.
