Walk Details: Iconic Walks of the Peak District No: 21 – Eyam and Bretton Clough
Route:Eyam – Eyam Moor – Bretton – Great Hucklow – Foolow - Eyam
Difficulty: Moderate, Underfoot conditions are rated VS on the D.U.C.K.((tm)) sliding scale.
Longer Description:To get warm we’ll head out of Eyam all the way up to Eyam Moor, with fine views of some of the most familiar peaks. Across the moor and head down into the deep dank Bretton Clough and try and figure our way out through the myriad of snaking snickets. Breathlessly up to Bretton we’ll admire the views across the other side of the Peaks. Along the ridge and head down through the pretty villages of Great Hucklow and Foolow before wandering across the fields to Eyam. If anyone fancied a cuppa afterwards we can pop into one of the many Eyam cafes trying to avoid getting the plague.
