This beautiful circular walk is centred around the historic town of Wirksworth on the edge of the Peak District. The walk is being held as part of the Wirksworth Festival a yearly event celebrating the arts, culture, architecture and landscape in the area.
Our route takes us through rolling hills above the town, historic lead mining and quarry sites, Cromford Canal and its Mills, Black Rocks and the High Peak Railway Trail. It includes delightful woodland sections and stunning views of the Ecclesbourne and Derwent Valleys. It is hoped to eventually produce a booklet of the walk and raise funds for the Wirksworth Heritage Centre.
Please note: The walk is 17 miles/28km with approximately 3000ft/900m of ascent. The length of this walk indicates that participants must be fit and able to walk at a consistent pace throughout the walk and happy completing undulating walks of 15 miles or more.
The cost is £40 per person. Please book and pay below.

Joining the walk by train? Provided we’ve got enough spaces in our vehicles, we can pick you up and return you to Cromford train station which is nearby - just let us know when you book.
