This walk heads towards the village of Clowne and on towards and through the dolomitic Limestone Gorges of Hollinhill and Markland Grips, displaying dramatic scenery created by steep valley sides and exposed rock faces, once popular for fishing, blackberry picking and hazelnuts. The walk takes the group through the village of Creswell – renowned for its Model Village – and over the beautiful landscaped fields, returning to the delights of the country pub in the pretty village of Elmton.
