Highlights

A beautiful and varied walk from the picturesque village of Ashford in the Water.
This is a particularly varied walk with the added bonus of a fantastic array of wild flowers and orchids in spring and early summer. The walk leaves the village of Ashford in the Water and climbs up and across fields to Monsal Head providing amazing views of the Wye valley. We then descend to the river before following along it's side through Monsal Dale. We continue into Deep Dale where there is an abundance of flowers including the early purple orchid, wild thyme, cowslips and many more in spring and early summer.
We progress up Deep Dale to Magpie Mine, where we explore the best preserved 19th Century lead mine in the UK, with it’s Cornish engine house, chimneys and even an old horse gin. The Peak District Mines Historical Society have done a great job in preserving what is now Derbyshire's top industrial heritage site. There will be further opportunities to see spring flowers on the return walk to Ashford in the Water, some of which have adapted to living in areas with a high lead concentration, such as the Leadwort and yellow mountain pansies.
