Sunday 21st April.Easter Sunday.Manifold Valley. Ruth and Deborah
This classic White Peak walk in the Manifold Valley will be hugely rewarding without too many crowds on Easter Sunday. Just bear in mind that, starting as it does on the popular Manifold Way, parking might be trickier than usual if the weather’s good. It’s a 7ish mile walk that starts in the valley, heads straight up towards Sugarloaf and up to Ecton Hill, Wetton Hill, through Wetton and back onto the flat Manifold Way. A great walk which has a few dog friendly stiles, a few sharpish climbs and descents, may be muddy and where poles are recommended if you have them. The walk starts from Wetton Mill car park in the Manifold Valley. This is not the small car park in front of a café bedside the river, but one on Leek Road driving up toward the café. Put in the postcode for Dale Farm - DE6 2AG. There are outside toilets to the lefthand side of the café entrance and, once earned, the small café serves good tea and cake!
