Ashbourne is a market town in the Derbyshire Dales, England, with a population of 8,377 in the 2011 census, estimated at 9,163 in 2019. It contains many historical buildings and independent shops, and offers a historic annual Shrovetide football match. Its position near the southern edge of the Peak District makes it the closest town to Dovedale, to which it is sometimes referred as the gateway.
The town’s name derives from the Old English æsc-burna meaning ‘stream with ash trees’.
Ashbourne was granted a market charter in 1257. In medieval times it was a frequent rest stop for pilgrims walking “St Non’s Way” to the shrine at Dunstable in Bedfordshire.
The forces of Charles Edward Stuart passed through Ashbourne during the Jacobite rising of 1745.
