Buxworth is a small village in the High Peak of Derbyshire centred around Bugsworth canal basin the terminus of the Peak forest canal. It lies in an attractive rural setting within close reach of Chinley and Whaley Bridge providing a quiet and tranquil setting to enjoy life in a fantastic rural setting.
The village was originally called Bugsworth, but in the early 20th century, some residents began to dislike the name of their village and the local vicar and the village school headmaster championed their cause. As a result of the efforts of these two residents, Bugsworth officially became Buxworth in April 1930. No regard was paid to the ancient origins of the village name, which can be traced back to Norman times!
