Moorlands and History around Eyam

Heather on Abney Moor

Moorlands and History around Eyam. Peak District, with Rachel Bolton

Sunday 30 August


A full day guided walk as part of a small group of usually no more than four people plus your guide to explore the beautiful countyside, and to learn about the fascinating history around the village of Eyam.


We ascend out of Eyam to Lady Wash lead mine, one of the last working lead mines in Derbyshire.  After Sir William Hill, a high point on our walk, we make our way over the heather clad Eyam Moor, descending to the delightful Abney Clough.  Our route then climbs out of the valley and traverses lonely Offerton Moor with far reaching views of surrounding moors and heather.  We make our way back to Eyam via Abney Grange and the lovely village of Foolow.  A stunning and historical walk with plenty of variety! 


The distance is about 11.5 miles/18km with approx 738 metres of ascent.


Please book and pay below.  You are booking with Rachel Bolton who will guide the walk on the day.
