Details

We’ll board a minibus for a free ride to Lightwood at the northernmost tip of North East Derbyshire. The walk passes through rolling farmland and wooded valleys typical of the area. After crossing a small airstrip and walking along an ancient track bed we climb to a splendid viewpoint presenting a panorama of Chesterfield and its surrounding towns and villages which includes Bolsover Castle. After a gentle descent to Whittington the walk finish with a short stretch of the Cuckoo Way alongside the Chesterfield Canal before returning to starting point at the Town Hall.
