Historical Description

Middleton Dale, a romantic glen in the N of Derbyshire, commencing at the village of Stoney Middleton, near the-river Derwent, and ascending about 2 miles north-westward till it merges in the mountains toward Castleton. Naked masses of rock rise on both sides of it to a great height, and a grand and famous one of these bears the name of the Lover's. Leap.
