TISSINGTON VILLAGE HALL CRAFT FAIRS
Tissington is one of the prettiest and most unspoilt villages not only in Derbyshire but in the whole of the country. The entrance used by most visitors off the main Ashbourne to Buxton road, through large rusticated lodge gates.
An avenue of 200 year old lime trees, immediately creates an air of expectancy. Surprisingly this fine approach does not lead directly to Tissington Hall, but the village itself. Neat well tended gardens and limestone cottages, behind wide grass verges and backed by mature trees, give a feeling of peace and tranquillity. No planner designed it; the beauty of the village is the result of evolution.
Craft fairs have been organised at Tissington Village Hall and have been well attended. A further programme of events have been arranged for 2007, details of which are set out below.
