L W Hancock & Son

Up the steep hill and through the little white door you’ll find the butchers. The Hancock family arrived in Stoney Middleton in the 1700s all the way from Barlow, Foolow, and Eyam, and have been there ever since. They’ve dabbled in everything, from mining to shopkeeping, but especially cows and cattle – the shop has been there since at least 1871. Garry, who joined his father Lance in 1976 and now runs the business, keeps his own herd of cows and still delivers locally.
