  • Dinner Included
DAY 2

Longshaw Estate

Our full day walk today starts and finishes at Longshaw estate, a National Trust moorland estate between Chesterfield and Hathersage. The route takes us firstly through Burbage, a natural amphitheatre of gritstone cliffs where we climb gently up on good paths to Upper Burbage Bridge. We then cross a short section of moor to Stanage Edge, famous as a rock climbing venue and also used for film locations including the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice. Here we will reach the high point of the day with some stunning views. A short diversion from the path will be made to see some mill stones carved from the rocks hundreds of years ago, and now a symbol for the Peak District National Park. We then head south over fields and moor to the craggy Higger Tor and the ancient fort location of Carl Wark before crossing a stream and returning to Longshaw Estate Cafeteria for lunch (own cost).

Moors and Woods

After breakfast we will check out of our rooms before starting our morning walk. We will meet our guide who takes us on a one-way route starting in the small village of Birchover. We head over Stanton Moor and spend some time here visiting some of its special features such as the Cork Stone and the Nine Ladies Stones Circle before heading down through beech woods and old quarries. From there its onwards through fields descending into the Derwent valley and a quiet country road into Rowsley to finish.
