Moors and Gritstone Edges to Hathersage

Moors and Gritstone Edges to Hathersage guided walk

6. From Dore - Woodland, Moors and Gritstone Edges to Hathersage

Saturday 25 August 2018 - Fully booked


A full day linear guided walk as part of a small group of usually no more than six people plus your guide from Dore railway station through woodland, over hills, moorland and along gritstone edges to the village of Hathersage.  Throughout the day, your friendly, professional guide will share with you a wealth of knowledge about the local history, geology, wildlife and plantlife. 


Our walking route takes us initially on paths through the historic and beautiful Eccleshall Woods, up the wooded Limb Valley, and through the woodland of Lady Canning's Plantation, before picking up the Houdskirk track the leads onto Houndskirk Moor.  We then take a smaller path over the heather covered Burbage Moor.  Upon reaching Burbage Edge we will enjoy stunning views over the Burbage Basin to the next section of our route - Carl Wark (the site of an Iron Age hill fort) and Higger Tor.  Our route also takes us along the southern part of the famous Stanage Edge, again for amazing views over the Hope Valley and hills beyond.


This is a good time of year to see the heather in flower on the moors.


This walk is about 11 miles/17.5km with approx 500 metres of ascent.  

The cost is £38 per person including train fare to Dore.  Please book and pay below.
