Where is this village?

Recommended Posts

I have visted this place a few times, but having memory issues can't remember where it is!

 

I am not sure if it is in S. Yorkshire or Derbyshire, though think the former. It is on a railway line, by car I think it is about 30 mins from Sheffield Centre, it is affluent, lots of commuters, an attractive village, with a Old Church and Refectory on a hill, it has as its modern core a covered shopping area, (not a mall), with a Cafe in the centre and upmarket clothing shops, etc, around, it also has a row of shops and housing, with a large green space in front of them, not much info, but its driving me bonkers not identifying it.

Do you have a picture of it and/or surrounding area, or perhaps you could describe other nearby places?

Is it  Peak Village Outlet Mall at Rowsley?

Put  Peak Village Outlet Mall in Google Earth and have a look.

I don't think the shopping area was as big as that, i also think it was past Chapeltown, it has a normal railway line, not a heritage one.

 

Its a very affluent place, with a few bohemian shops.

Past chapeltown? Heading towards Barnsley/Rotherham ? Next station on the line looks like Elsecar on google maps.

Not sure about the Chapeltown bit, think its going to remain a mystery, unless someone who lives there recognises it, its a very very nice place, in terms of the shopping hub, it is a only small hub with a fair few tables and then around the cafe is some small shops, selling clothing, crafts, etc. There is definitely a working railway station.

Heading the other direction, villages out in the Peak District with a railway station are grindleford and hathersage.
