Saturday 1 May
A guided walk in the delightful Derbyshire Dales as part of a small group of no more than five 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.
This walk has it all! We leave the picturesque village of Bonsall and ascend out of the village onto the open moor to explore the industrial archaeology sites of a thriving lead mining industry. The lanes and meadows are adorned with wild flowers, grasses and impressive limestone walls. Wonderful views extend far over to North and South Derbyshire. We visit the village of Winster, and follow a delightful ancient paved path to a ridge above Birchover village. Then woodland tracks and meadows are followed back to Bonsall. Much of our walk follows part of the popular Limestone way national trail.
The distance of this guided walk is about 10 miles/17 kilometres with a height gain of 1,757 feet/163 metres.
The cost is £38 per person. Please book and pay below. You are booking with Rachel Bolton who will guide the walk on the day.
We meet in free car park near recreation ground on Clatterway Road in the village of Bonsall. More detailed parking information will be provided in your booking confirmation.
The meeting time is 9:15am to be ready to set off at 9:30am.
