Onecote is a small village which serves as a centre for a farming community scattered around and above the upper valley of the River Hamps in the south west of the Peak District.

The houses are attractively built in the local sandstone, with the Georgian style church at the centre and a pub, the Jervis Arms on the main road. The walk up the upper Hamps to the Mermaid Inn is a fine outing and takes you past Mixon, the site of a disused copper mine which was exploited about the same period as the Ecton Hill mines. There is also good access onto the uplands of Morridge, which offer superb views across the to the south west of the Peaks, particularly The Roaches, Ramshsawe Rocks and Tittesworth and sunsets from up here can be spectacular.
