A typical limestone village, Litton is a quiet backwater with a large central green, surrounded by fields and farms. There is a pub and a small shop but little else other than the houses of the villagers and a sense of tranquility.


It is, however, an excellent base to start a number of walks in the area, for example into the dales of Litton Dale, Millers Dale and Monsal Dale.

In the Spring the green is filled with the waving yellow heads of daffodils.
