|Description:||This is Pie Country. Denby Dale is renowned for mammoth meat pies baked at intervals since 1788 to celebrate important events. One of the pie dishes is preserved on the main street. The surrounding countryside is also worth savouring, with its variety of woods, valleys and streams, and there is a 16th-century tithe barn at Gunthwaite Hall. The country park of Cannon Hall is a worthwhile objective, with its lake, garden and grounds. The house is a museum (not open Thursdays and Fridays), and there is an open farm which is popular with children.
