Bakewell is a small town in the county of Derbyshire in north-central England. It is located on the River Wye, 31 miles southeast of Manchester

The area was first settled in Anglo-Saxon times, around the 5th Century, when the land belonged to the kingdom of Mercia. The actual town grew around a parish church built here in 920 AD.

Today, Bakewell is known for its many well-preserved historic buildings: mainly Chatsworth House, All Saints Church, and Haddon Hall, among others. It is also renowned for its signature Bakewell pudding, its independent local businesses, lovely countryside, and tourism.
