Ashbourne Feature - Historic Market Town

Ashbourne, referred to as the "Gateway to Dovedale" with fine buildings, attractive shops, cafes & cobbled streets. 

Across St John’s Street hangs one of only a small number of gallows signs that remain.  Above the sign, the Blackamoor’s Head smiles as you arrive and frowns as you depart.
