Ashover

About

A pleasant circular route south of Chesterfield, starting out on the A619 Chatsworth Road and visiting some pretty Derbyshire villages.

See where the Roundheads and the Royalists had a punch up. Imagine long lost soldiers returning from Agincourt. See where Florence Nightingales family are buried. And see where George Stephenson developed even more railways.

The route is 15 miles long and takes in some beautiful countryside. You'll climb out of Chesterfield and drop down into river valleys. You'll pass by Ogston Reservoir, a great place for bird watching, and return to Chesterfield along the route of the Roman road Ryknield Street.
