Walk Description:

Nestled in the mid-Derbyshire hills Brassington sits in splendid isolation. The village of Brassington is set on a hillside with its grey limestone houses huddled together clinging and the 900-year-old Church of St James an appropriately dominant presence.

The whole area is steeped in history with evidence quarry’s and mines and makes a really fabulous location to start this walk.  

Depending on the weather this walk will either take a route along the High Peak Trail to Harboro' Rocks and the Limestone Way or it may be in a southerly direction towards Carsington.   

Miles:   7 miles

Gradients:  lowest 606ft Highest 984ft Total ascent 762ft
