This is a one-day walking tour which we have developed to give you a fresh look at an old landscape. The day brings the past alive using the landscape of the National Park visiting sites that date from the end of the last Ice Age to WWII.
You will be picked up from a central location in Buxton and taken to the start of the walk in the Upper Dove Valley. We will spend the day walking through a landscape that has evidence of human activity over thousands of years and stopping at a number of points en route. The tour will have a maximum of 6 participants and will involve walking approximately 9 miles. It will give you the chance to look in depth at what seems to be a familiar landscape. Most of the walk (80%) will be on tarmac, but there are some elements that involve trackways and farm tracks, and a single short but strenuous climb. There are also several stiles and gateways to be negotiated, and there may be livestock in fields. The walk ends in Hartington, where you will be picked up and transported back to Buxton.
We will stop for lunch at the Pack Horse Inn in the picturesque village of Crowdecote (the cost of this is not included in the price)
