A walk in a beautiful part of the Derbyshire Dales - and an opportunity to meet other CC’ers face-to-face!

The walk is about 8½ miles long, starting at Over Haddon (near Bakewell) and will be along Lathkill and Bradford Dales. With breaks, lunch, etc it will probably take between five and six hours. There’s a total of about 185m (600’) of ascent.

We'll meet at 10.30 for a 10.45 start in the big public car park on Main Street in Over Haddon, the postcode for which is DE45 1JE (note this postcode covers most of the village!). Once you get into Over Haddon, go to the Western end of Main St; once you get to the triangular green, the car park and loos are next to it. To meet up with us look for the green flask on top of a car. The car park is pay and display (£5.50 for the day); you could try to park on the road in the village, but please show consideration for local residents. There are toilets in the car park at the start/finish.

Note this is a moderate hike – not a stroll – with a lot of rocky paths underfoot, some muddy fields, lots of stiles, and at one point there’s a steep climb out of one of the dales, up stone steps. If you’re not used to hiking, or are in any doubt about your ability, please ask.

You’ll need walking boots, a waterproof and plenty of water. Bring along a packed lunch; on our return to Over Haddon mid-afternoon there is a pub, if people would like to stay on for a social drink.

To join us press the “Attend Meetup” button in the top corner of this page. If you do sign up but subsequently decide not to come, please “unattend” by pressing the button visible when you hover over “You’re attending”, to help us keep track of numbers.

Sorry, but no dogs please.

Look forward to seeing you on the 2nd!
