Welcome to Longnor Village in the Peak District

Longnor is a traditional rural Peak District village steeped in history. It is located at a northern point of the Staffordshire Moorlands close to the Derbyshire boundary on a high ridge dividing the rivers Dove and Manifold some six miles from Buxton. Confirmed origins of Longnor can be traced back to the founding of St Bartholomew’s Church on its present site in 1223, although there are records of activity in the area from the days of the Saxon Kings of Mercia around 700AD.

Today the village has grown considerably, but it is still small by modern standards. It has a population of about 300. It is surrounded by working farmland and retains its traditional rural feel.
