It’s always interesting for us to walk through Beresford Dale and enjoy the unique and tranquil atmosphere. Are we walking the paths our ancient ancestors once trod?
Beresford Dale is a beautiful part of the Dove valley on the Derbyshire Staffordshire boundary. It is associated with Izzak Walton and Charles Cotton, and the 17th century classic ‘The Compleat Angler or The Contemplative Man’s Recreation’. Here is Pike Pool, so called, as Cotton himself tells us because of the rock pike that rises out of the water.
