English: Monyash (pronounced "monny-ash") is a village in the Derbyshire Peak District about five miles west of Bakewell. The Domesday Book of 1086 names the village as Maneis, a berwich of Bakewell and owned by the King. The name Maneis is thought to mean "many ash (trees)", after the abundance of ashes which once thrived here. The village is located in a shallow hollow in the limestone plateau at the head of Lathkill Dale, which starts just outside of the village. Centred on a traditional village green, a crossroads of old routes leads respectively to Bakewell, Newhaven, Youlgreave and Buxton.
