Chairman's Welcome

Curbar parish is located in the beautiful Peak District National Park, where panoramic views and settings are valued by residents and visitors alike. As chairman of the Council for the past ten years, I have focused our activities on the preservation of the unique landscape and local characteristics that are the essence of Curbar.

This website includes a wealth of information about the council and the village, which I hope you find useful. You may also be interested in visiting the recently restored telephone box on Curbar Hill, which includes a map of the village, places of interest and a leaflet rack advising visitors of venues and events in the area.

For walkers, we invite you to take a breather, have refreshments or just admire the scenery on any of the seven benches we provide from the bridge at the bottom of Curbar Hill up to Curbar Edge car park. In order to maintain Curbar's calm and natural beauty, we appreciate when people respect our landscape and countryside, observe speed limits, park sensibly and clean up after their dogs.

I would like to welcome you to the Curbar Parish Council website, which will be updated regularly with news, events and further information of interest.
