This guided walk explores the stunning countryside and gritstone edges in the area around the historic Chatsworth House in the Peak District. Chatsworth House and it’s grounds are simply breath taking! 

 In the autumn the colours from the trees and moorland are striking. Our open walk starts at Chatsworth, gaining height through the grounds to the hunting lodge. We then follow Chatsworth Edge to the Robin Hood Inn, enjoying far reaching views in all directions and over the Chatsworth estate including the fountain. 

 We then cross over to Birchen Edge and follow to a rock outcrop known as the 3 ships, representing Victory, Sovereign and Endeavor, with Nelsons monument close by. The edge is followed over moorland and continues to Baslow Edge and the site of Wellington’s monument. 

We then circle the edge to admire the views and rock architecture before descending to Baslow village and returning to Chatsworth via the park grounds.

The distance approximately 9 miles/145 kilometres, with a height gain of 1,128 feet/344 metres.
