Details

Mayfield is a village in Staffordshire on the outskirts of Ashbourne, Derbyshire, and about 9 miles from Uttoxeter. The village is divided into Church Mayfield, Upper Mayfield and Middle Mayfield. It lies on the banks of the River Dove amd borders the Peak District National Park.

It was the scene of a siege during the retreat of Bonnie Prince Charlie, who terrorised the local villagers, who took refuge in St John's church. The church still stands to this day, and several bullet holes reputedly from weapons fired during the siege can still be seen in some of the woodwork. Mayfield is also the site of textile production. Mayfield has a well-dressing in mid-June and is one of the few places outside Derbyshire to hold one.
