This route is an amalgam of D226 and D230 and includes High Peak Trail & Junction, some of the most attractive sections of the Cromford Canal before climbing from Whatstandwell Bridge up to Wirksworth Moor and back to Steeple Grange
Distance 12.3 km
A more challenging route. The first half is easy with lots of points of interest (mining, rail and canal history). From Whatstandwell Bridge the route is very different and climbs through fields and woods to return to the start through Little Bolehill.
Lots to see on this walk so allow extra time to visit some of the points of interest on route. Combines industrial history on the first part of the route with quiet rural paths on the return.
