Walking the Round


A walk that completely encircles the town of Chesterfield. It’s 34 miles in 12 hours – are you up for the challenge?

Starting on the south-eastern side of town the walk passes a majestic ruin then meanders through excellently restored industrial land before starting the northward leg along the edge of the western side of town. With its high moorland, this is a particularly beautiful part of the route with many woods, ancient industrial remains and reservoirs.

After rounding the northern tip of the route we shall be rewarded with fine views of rolling farmland and gently swaying corn before completing the southward leg to return to the white hart pub for a very well earned pint.

You are free to do all or part of the walk. If you do only part of the walk you will be transported back to the start on request. Frequent water fill up points are provided by our dedicated support team but you will need to bring a packed lunch.

Please note that there are 4000 feet of ascent. Children over 12 are accepted by special permission.

Organised by the Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire Ramblers
