Sheen is a small village strung out along a gritstone ridge between the Dove and Manifold valleys. It is a quiet place, far removed from the bustle of nearby Hartington.
Most of the village exists on farming, but there is also a small engineering works here. The village is built of local stone and has a church of unusual design.
Sheen Hill is a fine viewpoint from which to survey the upper Dove and Manifold Valleys. For many years Sheen has had the peculiar distinction of producing both men's and women's world-class tug-of-war teams!
