Walk Description:

121 with Sam

This week the terrific Tuesday series of Explorer WALX is in Mayfield, starting at Mayfield Yarns close to Ashbourne. We walk around Church Mayfield, Middle Mayfield, and Clifton. Mayfield is a large, sprawling village on the Staffordshire side of the River Dove, close to Ashbourne.

Middle Mayfield has some lovely 17th and 18th-century houses. Church Mayfield, down by the river and the oldest part of the village, has the church and an old yarn mill where we meet. It is an old village with a lovely church and since the end of the 18th century, it has mostly made a living through the cotton mills situated along the River Dove.  

Exploring this area, we have some good views and more gentle terrain.

This walk is designed to help you to keep 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.  

Please consider your travel time whilst in lockdown. 

Please bring your own mug along for coffee or BYO.
