Birchen Edge is located close to Baslow in Derbyshire. Features include cairns and tumulus although some of these can be hard to find.

A monument was built on the cliff top in 1810 to celebrate Nelson's famous victory at the Battle of Trafalgar.

Birchen Edge is popular with ramblers and climbers offering great views of the surrounding countryside. The climbing routes have nautical names because of Nelsons monument and the three ships.
