This is a Peak District guided walk that combines nature, stunning scenery and a film linked to two classic novels - Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre. The walk begins in Hathersage and ascends gradually onto a dramatic rock escarpment, Stanage Edge. This is where actress, Keira Knightley playing Elizabeth Bennett, stood upon a rock ledge and dreamed of Mr Darcy in the 2005 film version of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. We stop for pictures at the iconic 'Keira Knightley Rock' and also explore Robin Hood's Cave (legend suggests he sheltered there). Descending from the Edge we pass North Lees Hall, a beautiful stately home visited by Charlotte Bronte in 1845 - it's believed North Lees inspired Thornfield Hall, home to Mr Rochester in Bronte's classic, Jane Eyre.
This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:
