Thorpe Cloud & Thorpe Pasture, Peak District, Derbyshire

Take a picture tour of Thorpe Cloud..

About Thorpe Cloud

Overshadowing the picturesque village of Thorpe is the 1,000 ft high limestone hill called "Thorpe Cloud", which with Bunster Hill stands sentinel either side of the entrance to Dovedale. Out of interest the word "cloud" has its roots in the old English word - "clud" meaning large rock or hill. A pity really - as "Thorpe Cloud" sounds as if it should have a more romantic meaning than "The hill by the Danish farm"! This aside - the views from the top of Thorpe Cloud are spectacular - and it's not difficult to climb - just a 20 minute walk from the entrance of Dove Dale.
