Bakewell

Bakewell is a small market town in Derbyshire, deriving its name from 'Badeca's Well'. The only town included in the Peak District National Park, it is located on the River Wye, about thirteen miles southwest of Sheffield, close to the tourist attractions of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. It is well known for the local confection, Bakewell Pudding. Villages near Bakewell include Ashford-in-the-Water, Elton, Great Longstone, Monyash, Over Haddon, Sheldon, Rowsley and Youlgreave.

Bakewell attracts many domestic and international tourists. Monday is a particularly popular day for visitors as this is the day that the traditional market is held in the town. The cattle market is housed in a new purpose built agricultural centre, across the river from the main part of the town. A medium sized stall market is held in the town centre. There is a picturesque public park, alongside the River Wye, which has its source in nearby Buxton. For a town of its size, it has a very large town centre. This is mainly because of the touristic nature of the town.
