Hognaston is a sleepy little village within sight of Carsington Reservoir, in the south of the White Peak.

The church is another (like many locally) with Norman parts, some medieval bits and a lot of Victorian 'restoration' (or rebuilding). However there is a fine Norman tympanum and main doorway and some fine 14th century parts.

The village has some fine old houses and boasts a pub, the Red Lion, and a post office. It is a beautiful and quiet place, having been bypassed by the road which now serves the reservoir, and a good centre from which to explore the area.
