The building was purpose built as a Co-Op in 1887. The Youlgrave Co-Op catered to much of the local population’s needs, even supplying the village with electricity until 1910. However, the Co-Op finally closed its doors in 1968. By 1975 the building was once again open to the public but this time as a Youth Hostel, making use of the improved transport links to welcome visitors from all over the country and opening up the picturesque village in its beautiful setting to a much wider audience. Youlgrave village is set in the picturesque White Peak area of the Peak District, so-named because of the limestone which makes up much of its geology. The local area has a rich history of agriculture and mining. Evidence of both can be found in nearby Lathkill Dale, a beautiful valley which is home to ruins of old mine buildings. The towns of Bakewell and Matlock Bath are located nearby offering a wealth of sightseeing, shopping and attractions.
