The walk begins at the newly restored Dronfield Hall Barn, a Medieval Hall dating from 1430, and follows roads and parks to Frith and Metapic Woods, past the new Dronfield Community Brewery. The route returns to Dronfield , where there will be some of the local beers to taste at The Barn (included in charge). On the walk we shall explore aspects of the area’s rich mining, railway and toolmaking heritage, including the site of a factory where gunpowder was used during a widespread industrial dispute in 1850s.
