Chesterfield Town Hall

About

A linear walk from Chesterfield to Clay Cross (returning via public transport) following the Hipper Valley before leaving the urban scene and the town’s historic and industrial past.

Heading south along footpaths and bridleways, we pass through beautiful countryside, pausing to view Somersall Hall, Stubbing Court and Salem Chapel. A short climb gives extensive views of Bolsover Castle and Hardwick Hall on the horizon.

Onwards through several hamlets before arriving at Kenning Park and then Clay Cross bus station.

Bring a packed lunch
Organised by Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire Ramblers
