Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Glossop is a market town in Derbyshire, surrounded by spectacular Peak District scenery including Kinder Scout, and 13 miles from Manchester.

Its prosperity grew up around cotton and woollen mills.

From Glossop, the sometimes hair raising Snake Pass leads Eastwards over the moors towards Sheffield.

The Romans had a fort here, named Malandra.

The present town centre was built by the Duke of Norfolk from the 1820s, while the attractive houses in the original village of Old Glossop are mainly 17th century.
