About

An eco-friendly route from Chesterfield to Chatsworth (and the Peak District) via Queen's Park, Walton Dam, Somersall Park, the pretty village of Holymoorside, up to Eastmoor, and across the moors to the pre-historic Hob Hurst's House on Beeley Moor.

A varied, fairly traffic-free journey covering some Chesterfield features, parkland and remote moorlands which contrast  with the usual crowds around Chatsworth House.

Pleas bring a packed lunch.

Organised by Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire Ramblers
