Lathkill Dale and the Limestone Way

Lathkill Dale and the Limestone Way

Saturday 17 November 2018

 

A guided walk in the White Peak area as part of a small group of no more than 6 people plus your friendly, professional walk leader.  Throughout the walk your guide will 'bring the countryside to life' by sharing with you a wealth of local knowledge. 

 

From the village of Over Haddon we take a path down into the valley of the River Lathkill and along to the tiny hamlet of Alport.  From there we take another pretty riverside path through delightful Bradford Dale to join part of the long distance Limestone Way path near to Youlgreave.  The path winds its way up the hillside and through fields.  This is dry-stone wall country, typical of The White Peak.  We then enter Lathkill Dale, one of the area's famous, deep limestone gorges.  We explore the remains of an ancient quarry and learn about 'Black Ashford Marble', then walk up to a high point above the dale for magnificent views.   

 

The walk is about 11miles/18km and with approx 300 metres of ascent.
