You arrive at in the village of Hope to stay in an ancient coaching inn or friendly bed and breakfast.
Day 2 - 10 Miles
Leaving Hope, you walk along level fields to Castleton, with its famous show caves and overlooked by the 11th century castle that gave the village it's name. A hidden gateway takes you out of the village into the impressive Cave Dale leading you easily over the wild "Old Moor". A beautiful stretch of quiet dales through the Derbyshire Nature Reserve and easy tracks lead you to the village of Tideswell, with its impressive church, "The Cathedral of the Peak".
Day 3 - 10 Miles
Depart Tideswell and follow the picturesque dale sharing its name, to the grandeur of the limestone gorges of the River Wye. On easy level paths alongside the river and the converted railway of the "Monsal Trail" you pass through Millers Dale and the magically named Water-cum-Jolly. From here a steep, but short, climb leads to the spectacular Monsal Head with its famous views of the old railway viaduct arching across the valley below.
After lunch, descend back into the valley on a gentle track and through wide pastures below the Stone Age settlement of "Fin Cop". You then walk up the gentle, not often visited, Deep Dale to cross fields to the chocolate box village of Monyash with its beautiful village green, mere, church, teashop, pub and walk's end.
