Unthank is a hamlet in the North East Derbyshire district of Derbyshire, England.[1] It is sited on a narrow lane on the southern slopes of the Cordwell Valley, at an altitude of about 185 metres (610 ft).

On the 6th of May 1970, a USAF McDonnell-Douglas RF-4C crashed in the nearby Stripes Wood while doing a NATO training exercise. Both crew men ejected and landed at Curbar Edge.[2]
