“Please note that a £ 2 parking charge has now been introduced for parking at Hathersage Station. It is not possible to pay by cash. From Hathersage we will follow the Derwent Valley Way to Padley, having a break at its famous medieval chapel. From there we will ascend the Bole Hill incline, where railway trucks loaded with stone from the quarries were once lowered for the construction of the Derwent Dams. We’ll then ascend to Hathersage Moor and Higger Tor, then onto Stanage Edge, before dropping down to Dennis Knoll and back to Hathersage.”

We start our walk (the first hour) by going down the canal all the way to Romiley. At Romiley we work our way through the houses passing the ‘piggy’ and then eventually zigzagging our way up Werneth Low. When we reach the Hare and Hounds will stop for lunch (do not forget to bring your own lunch as we are not eating in). After lunch we make our way down Werneth Low (the opposite side of the hill we came up) and cross fields and stiles and then enter Ethrow Park. Walk all the way through Ethrow to the cafe area. Cross the road and enter Brabens Park and follow the river back to Marple Bridge.
