Matlock is a town in the county of Derbyshire in north-central England. It is not to be confused with the town of Matlock Bath, which lies directly south. It is located 30 miles from Manchester on the River Derwent.
It was a small village in medieval times, but rose to prosperity when a thermal springs was discovered there in 1698, and it underwent renovation as a fashionable spa town.
Today, Matlock is known for its architecture, history, its Victorian public park, and public schools.
