Saturday 22nd June 2019 Derbyshire Walk Report.

On a lovely sunny day a party of 15 walkers set off in a minibus to Parsley Hay car park on the High Peak Trail. in Derbyshire.

On arrival we set off walking to the junction with the Tissington Trail. 

We continued on the High Peak Trail for 4 miles. Both trails are on old railway tracks so the gradients were very gentle. Then a foot path was taken for around 1 and a half miles here lunch was enjoyed at the Waterloo Inn at Biggin-by- Hartington.

From here we took the Tissington trail for 3 miles to the old Hartington station. A replica signal box has been built here also toilets and cafe with welcome ice cream.

                "I always wanted a train set when I was younger, now I've got a real one."

We continued along the Tissington Trail to the junction with the High Peak Trail and the car park at Parsley Hay after 1 mile.

Below are a series of pictures showing characteristics views of the peak District scenery and the ever present dry stone walls.

The minibus left at 4 15 and arrived back in Kettering at 6 15.

A big thank you is due to Steven Thompson for organising and leading what is fast becoming one of the highlights of the KDRC calendar and for providing this report.

Thanks to Julie S for acting as back marker and providing pictures. Pictures were also provided by Caroline C.
