Here's a link to GeoHack that offers all sorts of geographical information for Winster, including sunrise and sunset calendars

Postcode: DE4 2DJ is pretty central within the village

OS Maps: Winster is on Landranger (1:50,000) sheet 119 (Buxton & Matlock, Bakewell & Dovedale) and Explorer (1:25,000) sheet 24 (White Peak Area) - both available from Winster Post Office or (post free) from mapkiosk.

For alternative (and marginally higher-quality) aerial images, try Windows Live Local.

For old maps of Winster (and anywhere else in the UK), have a look at www.old-maps.co.uk (for large-scale detailed maps) or the New Popular Edition website (which has scans of out-of-copyright OS maps from the 1940's).

There are also four specific Winster maps:

- the Village Address Map - a map with index which will let you track down any house in the village.

- a simple car parking map showing where you can most sensibly park your car in Winster if wanting to use the village as the start-point for a day's walking. (Parking, on-street or in car parks - is free - how about calling in to our community-owned Village Shop to spend some of the money you have saved on parking?)

- a splendid colour map, with a persective drawing of the village, and illustrations showing the more notable buildings in the village - on sale in the village or by Mail Order.

- an isochrone map based on Winster, showing drivetime boundaries

And if none of this looks right, could it be that you are looking for Winster in Cumbria instead? (That's where you'll find the Bay Horse pub, Holy Trinity Church, the River Winster, and the Damson Festival, and where the clockmaker Jonas Barber came from). We don't know of any website for them (please let us know if anyone finds one), but here is a link to a Map for Winster, Cumbria
