Our walks are always the third Sunday of the month, in the summer we have occasional mid-week evening strolls and HD XTRA walks. All Sunday walks start at 10.30. Please be prompt, and allow time for putting boots on, last minute trip to the loo etc!
Please note that if it is very snowy, we may cancel the walk so please check back here if the weather looks bad. Other walks in the Peak District with local women's groups can be found from our links page
Details of our most recent past walks are here on our Old Walks page. 2018
17th June, Val and Sue. Baslow Meet: In the Pay & Display car park (£5.50 per day) next to Baslow Village Hall DE45 1SR (There is also various - but limited, on-street parking nearby) Facilities: toilets in the car park, café, pub and sandwich shop adjacent. Length: 6.5 Miles We start with an uphill walk of approx. 1 mile to reach the moorland and Wellington Monument. From here the paths level out and we pass Eagle Rock following Baslow Edge, Curbar Edge, then on towards Froggatt Edge. There are fabulous views of the valley and Chatsworth House from here.After a lunch stop, we descend through woodland to the Derwent River and valley below, culminating in a lovely riverside walk through fields and woodlands, then back into Baslow. NB. The first 50m of the descent after lunch is very rocky, so boots and poles (if you have them) are advised - it could be very slippery and a bit muddy, if wet.
