Alsop-en-le-Dale is a tiny Derbyshire village situated 5 miles north of Ashbourne
off the A515 on a narrow country lane. It is only a mile from Parwich and about a mile from Dovedale. The old railway station that use to serve Alsop-en-le-Dale is now a car park on the Tissington Trail.
The village consists of a church, a hall, afew farms and cottages. The church, dedicated to St MIchael and All Angels, was originally built in Norman times, though it was heavily restored in the 19th century. The nave still retains Norman features and a Norman window remains in the south wall.
Alsop Hall, situated in the quite village of Alsop-en-le-Dale, opposite the church, was built in the late 16th century for the Alsop family, whose ancestors had held the estate from the 12th century. It changed ownership in the late 17th century and has passed through the hands of a number of families since. Still in private ownership, the hall consists of 2 central 3 storey gables and single bay 2 storey wings.
