Enjoy the Chesterfield Area on foot, following a magical fairy trail at Creswell Crags, combining a walk with a boat trip along the Chesterfield Canal, or discover George Stephenson’s connection with Chesterfield on a walk ending with a talk from George himself at Chesterfield Museum.
If you’re looking for a challenge, try the Chesterfield Round Walk, a 34 mile trek through the countryside that surrounds the town. Or brave the Beast of Bolsover on a 20 mile circular hike. If that sounds all too much take an evening stroll of 5 or 6 miles, a short walk around the town or a family ramble of 2 or 3 miles.
Most walks are free so there’s no excuse not to join us. All are led by a fully trained guide who knows the history, wildlife and the best countryside to walk through (as well as the best pubs to visit) in the beautiful Chesterfield landscape.
Programmes will be available in January, when booking will open at Chesterfield Visitor Information Centre.
|Sat 6 - Sun 14 May 2017||09:00 to 21:00|
Many walks are free of charge.
