Bakewell ancient ‘capital of the Peak’. World famous puddings, the areas premier agricultural show, a thriving economy and a whole honeypot of attractions for holidaymakers and locals alike Bakewell is the administrative centre of the National Park and a ‘must see’ destination at the heart of the Peak District. Let’s Stay PEAK DISTRICT invites you on a tour of this delightful town…Bakewell grew up around a cluster of warm springs and wells which attracted Anglo Saxon settlers who named it Badecan wiellon, which means Baedecas spring. There is also evidence of prehistoric, Iron Age settlement in the eathworks of the Ball Cross hillfort, above the town to the east, where a cup-and-ring marked stone was found and is now in Sheffields Weston Park Museum.
The crossing of the River Wye, where the medieval five-arched bridge now stands, was obviously important, and the site became established both as a meeting and crossing point. The original fords were eventually replaced by bridges and two of these still remain: the 800-year-old town bridge, one of the oldest still in use in the country, and the narrow, 18th century Holme packhorse bridge further upstream.
Traditionally livestock farming and lead mining were the towns key industries, but the coming of the Industrial Revolution, fuelled by improvements in communication and waterpower, brought new ventures including several cotton mills. The construction of Lumsford Mill by Richard Arkwright in 1777 triggered a further surge in prosperity and eventually led to the rebuilding of much of the medieval town.
It is generally followed by the Bakewell Arts Festival a more recent event, launched in 1999, which features art, dance, music and drama. But the town is perhaps best known as the home of the Bakewell Pudding, a delicacy supposedly invented by accident in the 1860s, when a cook at the White Horse Inn now the Rutland Arms spread egg mix on top of her strawberry tart instead of stirring it into the pastry.
The story is almost certainly false, as the pudding was already well known at that point; in fact its roots can be traced back to medieval times. The matter is further complicated by the popularity of Bakewell tart, which is a different confection altogether, owing more to Mr Kipling than the White Horse Inn. Whatever the truth, the dessert has made Bakewell a household name and at least two local shops claim to be the sole owner of the original recipe.
Bakewell nestles at a crossroads in the heart of the Wye valley, where mellow carboniferous limestone to the south meets grey shale and rough gritstone edges to the north.
Considered to be part of the White Peak, it is built on sedimentary rock deposited 350 million years ago, when the land lay under a warm tropical sea. Today the town is nearly 400 feet above sea level, but it is by no means among the highest in the Peak District parts of which rise to 2000 feet.
Bakewell owes its existence largely to the River Wye, on whose banks it stands. The river rises high on Axe Edge and flows down through Buxton and Bakewell before joining the River Derwent at Rowsley.
Its bedrock has also played an important part in the towns fortunes, not only as a result of quarrying for limestone and gritstone, but also because of the rich deposits of minerals such as lead and chert found beneath the subsoil.
The area borders the Derbyshire Dales National Nature Reserve where five limestone valleys Lathkill, Cressbrook, Monks, Long and Hay are home to a rich variety of flora and fauna.
