Focus on S32


The S32 postcode area is located in the Sheffield postcode town region, within the county of Derbyshire.
The Peak District National Park is an area of special historical and architectural importance with development being controlled to preserve and enhance the area. The desire to have an S32 letterbox and the geographical distance to Sheffield, Chesterfield, Dronfield and Manchester empowers properties to command a high price. This area of outstanding natural beauty consists of several picturesque hamlets and villages such as Hathersage, Eyam, Grindleford, Curbar, Calver, Froggatt and Stoney Middleton.
Hathersage is one of the most desired places to live within the Hope Valley, this charming village offers a host of amenities such as hotels, pubs, shops, cafes and restaurants. The scenery of the Hope and Derwent valleys, its historical past and its easy access by train or road from Sheffield and Manchester has made Hathersage a popular destination for tourists.
Eyam is probably the best documented and most visited of all the villages in Derbyshire. In 1665-1666 this Peak District village reportedly lost over a third of its population to the Bubonic Plague and is famed for taking the decision to quarantine the entire village in order to restrict the spread of the outbreak. Modern day Eyam serves its residents well with excellent village amenities including the Miners Arms public house, local shops and a good primary school. 
Grindleford village is set within the heart of Peak District National Park. It is very popular with walkers and climbers due to its proximity to beautiful open countryside and gritstone cliff faces. This attractive village is served by a local shop, The Sir William public house and The Maynard hotel and also having an excellent train station with a café providing an easy commute to Sheffield and Manchester.
To the south of Grindleford you will find Froggatt, Calver and Curber. These attractive villages nestle below an acclaimed gritstone edge alongside wooded banks of the river Derwent. Picture box cottages form a community of people enjoying peace and tranquillity with a backdrop that has changed little over the centuries.
Once an important centre for lead mining and mineral extraction, Stoney Middleton has houses built onto steep limestone cliffs of a rocky dale. A main road cuts through the centre making it easily accessible to tourists and cavers looking to visit the warm springs, bathhouse and the caves at Craggy Middleton. The village offers a simple way of life with a small general store, a public house called The Moon, a chip shop/café and a restaurant.
S32 is a highly sought-after location where supply is low and demand remains high. The Peak District is a distinct and desirable place to live, one of the least densely populated parts of the UK, with good local schooling and village amenities. Most people live in modest but high value properties in picturesque areas, which promote a strong sense of community with like-minded people who share similar values.
