About Us

The sign on the Ship Inn, in this remote hamlet, sitting high up on the edge of the Peak District, depicts the 'Nimrod' - the vessel in which the local Sir Philip Brocklehurst accompanied Shackleton to the Antarctic.

The settlement was not listed in the Domesday Book, but in 1291 was known as 'Wynkehull' or 'Wineca's Hill'.

Through this hilly area runs the delightful wooded valley of the River Dane, the county's boundary with Staffordshire.
