Walk Description:

This week the terrific Tuesday series of Explorer WALX location is Mapleton, a charming and secluded brick-built village in the Dove valley with attractive views located just outside of Ashbourne. Mappleton offers the serenity of unchanging scenery and peace.

A one arch bridge spans the river Dove to carry the road to Okeover Hall, an early 18th century Hall surrounded by estate land. With views spanning over to Thorpe Cloud and the Dove Valley it always makes a memorable walk.

This walk is designed to help to keep you improving and get noticeable results whilst offers a very sociable time, mainly on footpaths through fields, hills and views.  

Please note:  Allow 90 minutes for these series of walks. 

Max numbers apply. 

Please bring your own mug for a hot drink or bring your own drink.
