A route that takes in much industrial heritage of the area (rail, canal, mining) and provides good variety
Distance 8.8 km
Route climbs up the incline from High Peak Junction to reach the point where Intake Lane crosses. It turns sharp left here and follows Intake Lane all the way to the B5035 then on to Crabtree Wood and Watergate Farm. It returns via Hankin Farm to the bridge at Whatstandwell and then follows Cromford Canal (Derwent Valley Heritage Way) back to High Peak Junction.
Probably best in spring, but possible at any time of year. No steep ascents or descents. Great walk for anyone interested in industrial archaeology.
