Wirksworth Walk with Trains, Quarries and Summer Flowers; history and nature

Diane Carter

Select Option


I am a regular walker and traveller and live in the Peak District. I love this area for its beauty and nature.
This particular walk is special as we start along the Peak Trail on an old train line used for carrying the quarry stones, then move on to Woodland, beautiful open countryside and through traditional villages.
It is the variety of underfoot terrain, views and breathtaking nature that I love so much about this walk.
I am not a licensed guide but I have business insurance for your peace of mind and regular lead walks and both UK and European Tours

About This Deal


A delightful 11 mile walk through an area filled with both history of the Richard Arkwright Mills and nature. Summer flowers in bloom all the way.
The walks crosses a variety of terrain including woodlands, forests, cobbled narrow pathways and high pathways. We enjoy awesome views of Cromford and Riber Castle as we ascend, then enjoy our picnic lunch (not provided) in the well known town of Matlock. Here we enjoy a recharge in the park area, before we ascend via the Limestone Way on to Bonsall.
The walk requires medium fitness as there is quite a lot of ascent but we enjoy a nice steady pace with time for photographs and breaks.
With rippling brooks, peaceful streams, wild flowers and nature, this walk takes you away from the noise of city life and offers a calming refreshments.
The walk can be adapted to suit longer or shorter distance walkers.
