The conservation village of Winster is situated within the White Peak area of the Peak District National Park and is an extremely pretty location with a charming 17th century market house at its centre, and other imposing 17th and 18th century houses, many, three storeys high. The three main streets - Main Street, East Bank and West Bank are interconnected by alleyways known as ‘ginnels’, which are well worth exploring. The village of Winster is famous for its Morris dancers, the annual Shrove Tuesday pancake race, Wakes festivities in June and the Secret Gardens of Winster event in July. Within the village there is a well-stocked, community-run general store incorporating a Post Office. There are two pubs, both serving food and traditional beer.
