King Sterndale is a village and civil parish in Derbyshire, England. It is located in the Peak District, 4 miles east of Buxton. It has a population of about 30, increasing to 133 at the 2011 Census.[1] The two hamlets of Cowdale and Stadon also lie within the parish.[2]

Brief history[edit]

The village has a butter cross which was restored in 1937. Unusually the village can only be approached from one direction via a road/piece of land that is twenty metres wide. This land was created as a result of an Enclosure in 1773. The route of the road changed slightly as a result of the church's construction in 1847.[2]

The village is the Derbyshire seat of the Pickford family, founders of the moving company Pickfords.[3]
