Looking eastwards to the A623 and the Wanted Inn. This direct but steep road to Chapel-en-le-Frith through the village is the original turnpike route, but was superseded in the late 18th century by a new road via Barmoor Clough. The modern main road follows the newer route, hence the sharp bend at Sparrowpit.

The name is derived from 'spar row pit' from the fluorspar mines.
It is situated at a crossroads where the main road (A623) takes a right-angled bend at the Wanted Inn. From this junction, one minor road takes a different and hillier route to Chapel-en-le-Frith, and another heads for Mam Tor and Castleton by way of the Winnats Pass.
