Route Outline
Day 1
Arrive in Winster, a beautiful Derbyshire village with a preserved medieval market hall, to spend the night in a fabulous coaching inn or delightful bed & breakfast.


Day 2 - 10 Miles
A day to see many of the locations from the recent "Pride & Prejudice" film. Leaving the village you cross Wensleydale with a real chance of seeing wild deer, to then cross Stanton Moor with it's tower and the famous "9 Ladies" stone circle. You then drop into the bottom of the Wye valley with views of Haddon Hall, through the village of Rowsley and up into the high Calton pastures. Passing the "Russian" house, you descend to the beautiful Chatsworth village of Edensor.

From here you pass in front of the glorious Chatsworth House, with chances of seeing the estate deer, to follow a delightful stretch of the river Derwent to pass one of the few thatched cottages in Derbyshire for your evenings rest in the village of Baslow.


Day 3 - 11 Miles
From Baslow you climb easily to "Wellington's Monument" and the curious Eagle Stone to spend a day on the dramatic edges of the eastern peak. Easy level walking takes you along the top of the gritstone crags of Baslow, Curbar and Froggatt Edges to arrive for lunch at a pub high on the moors.

From here you pass through the National Trust estate of Longshaw with breath taking views to the north and west, before an easy stroll along an ancient green drive in the magical Burbage valley. At the top of the valley you pass behind a stone age fort and settlement to drop gently across moors and quiet woodlands in to the walk's end in the home village of "Little John", Hathersage.
