Tideswell is a village and civil parish in north Derbyshire, with a strong community ethic. It is located within the Peak District National Park and referred to locally as Tidza.

Middle Ages Tideswell was a small market town, heavily reliant on lead mining. Today's Tideswell is a thriving locale with a population of over 1,800. It contains fine buildings and the magnificent 14th century church of St John the Baptist is called the Cathedral of the Peak.

Amenities and facilities include pre-school, school, library, sports complex, baker, butcher, greengrocer, delicatessen, general store, pharmacy, post office, restaurant, cafes, pubs and visitor accommodation. There is a small industrial estate.

At the heart of village life is the Tideswell & District Community Association. The TDCA is an umbrella body that promotes Tideswell, organises numerous events and offers tangible support to associations, clubs and societies.

The Village Voice reaches well beyond Tideswell. To Cressbrook, for instance, set amongst wooded dales. To picturesque Foolow with its duck pond. Great Hucklow, nestling under Hucklow Edge. Nearby Little Hucklow, in a fold of scenic uplands. Lovely Litton and its village green. Former textile hub Litton Mill, now residential. Along the River Wye to popular beauty spot Millers Dale. Peak Forest, complete with church, school and inn. Wardlow, a linear village of cottages and farms. Wheston, recorded in the Domesday Book as Whetstone. And historic Wormhill on the White Peak plateau.
