From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ashbourne is a market town in the Derbyshire Dales, England, with a population of 8,377 in the 2011 census. It contains many historical buildings and independently owned shops, and offers a historic annual Shrovetide football match. Its position near the southern edge of the Peak District makes it the closest town to Dovedale, to which it is sometimes referred as the “gateway”.
Ashbourne was granted a market charter in 1257. In medieval times it was a frequent rest stop for pilgrims walking “St Non’s Way” to the shrine at Dunstable in Bedfordshire.
