Walk Description

 

This is a 10 mile picturesque walk just on the Derbyshire Staffordshire border.

Circular walk from the stone-built village of Wetton in the Peak District National Park. We'll drop in on Thor’s Cave and then continue down to Ilam Park, before returning along the opposite side of the River Manifold.

Other features are, a disused Railway, derelict Hall, Ilam Park, Wetton Mill which is rather old (C16th) it also has a cafe. What's not to love?
