The town of Bakewell is located on the river Wye and known for the famed Bakewell pudding. It falls within the Derbyshire Dales district of Derbyshire. Less than 200 years ago, Bakewell had narrow streets and timber -framed properties with thatched roofs. The modern layout of the town came around only in the 19th Century. In modern Bakewell there is something for everyone from its many historic buildings and its wonderful riverside walks along the banks of the Wye, as well as the newly designed and recently revamped town center with several shopping arcades.
