At just over two miles – half of it along the old Cromford & High Peak Railway track – this is one of the shortest and easiest walks in the series. I added it in mid August during one of the fiercest heat waves we’ve ever had, breaking all previous records, with the water level in Errwood Reservoir dropping alarmingly low.

It’s a walk many people will have enjoyed. And perfect for an early morning or evening leg stretch. Particularly if you want to avoid walking in the heat. Although you could probably count on one hand the number of very hot days we get in the valley!

The walk starts from the small car park half way down Goyt’s Lane – the main route into the valley from the Buxton to Whaley Bridge Long Hill Road. And is easy to extend at both ends.
