description

The maximum number of people on this walk will be 10, including the walk leaders.

Roadside footpaths. Fields. Disused railway & tunnels.

Via Tideswell Dale to the disused railway.  Up to Monsal Head for the view of the viaduct (this section is via a narrow path, so be prepared to give way to anyone we may encounter).  Monsal Head is a popular place; it is easily accessible by road and has a car park.

Down a sometimes muddy woodland path to the river & weir (this is a fairly narrow path, but it is usually less used than other paths in the area).

Back onto the railway path & through Headstone Tunnel (which is lit). Across fields to Little Longstone & then to Wardlow Hay Cop. Next to Peter's Stone and then uphill to the beginning.
