We start with an opportunity to stroll around a circuit of Cresswell Crags itself, a stunning gorge with evidence of ice age occupation (50,000-100,000 years ago.) Returning to the car park for a coffee break at 11.15 am (toilets available), we then start the walk on Robin Hood's Way. This is a linear walk on good, level tracks with extensive views as we walk through the grounds of Welbeck Abbey, and along through farmland and forest. We will return to Cresswell by 2.30/3.00pm in time to use the café (free entry) and a chance to tour the exhibition in the centre(£3.00 adult, £2.00 conc).

A walk of contrasting scenery from Ilkeston via Dale Abbey and Stanton-by-Dale. There is the tranquility of the countryside, canals and old railways balanced by the busy M1 and an industrial area. There are a lot of stiles some of which are only suitable for small agile dogs. There are no significant ascents. Total ascent 186 m Please
