A 26 mile walk in the White Peak of Derbyshire with views of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall and the beautiful scenery of the Derbyshire Dales...
A friendly and (mostly!) non-competitive event that welcomes both walkers and runners. Starting in the village of Baslow and wandering through Chatsworth Park, Edensor, Over Haddon, Sheldon, Monsal Dale, Cressbrook Dale, Foolow, Eyam, Froggatt and Calver, then passing through Bramley Wood and Bank Wood to return to Baslow.
The route shown is the one recommended by the event organisers, although you can choose your own route between each checkpoint so long as you stay on public rights of way.
Start Kissing gate in Chatsworth House estate, SK257719; Finish Baslow village hall, SK257722
Nearest town: Baslow village
Terrain: Everything from pathless grassy fields, to stony paths and some short sections of tarmac. Many, many stiles and gates!
Seasonal variations: Route should be accessible all year around, but some of the grassy sections can get overgrown, and the paths hard to see at times. A couple of fields may be ploughed, obscuring the line of the footpath
