Kingsley is an irregularly built village in two halves; Kingsley & Kinglsey Holt, set on a hillside in the beautiful Churnet Valley and home to the Kingsley Bird & Falconry Centre.
There is a lovely self-guided walk from here to Consall; the 'Churnet Country Walk', and the industrial heritage of Froghall is on the doorstep.
