Details

A journey around the parish stopping at places of historical importance along the way. The outward route climbs gently via a wood and wildflower meadow. Scenic views over Chesterfield from Slate Pit Dale are followed by a visit to the oldest industrial chimney in Britain. The return, descending from Stone Edge, shows a panoramic view of Bolsover Castle and Hardwick Hall on the horizon before reaching a pond, chapel and remains of an old saw mill. A delightful walk with an opportunity to finish with a well deserved pint, or a tea or coffee.
