Ashford in the Water
Sunday, 17 June 2018
Meeting time: 8:30
Start time: 9:30
(Estimated finish time: 16:00)
Moderate 12 miles / 19.3 km
Mostly gentle flat walking from the quintessential picturesque Derbyshire village of Ashford in the water to Bakewell, then on to Greater Longstone for a coffee stop. For lunch break either liquid sustenance at The Packhorse Inn at Little Longstone or a picnic overlooking Monsal Head viaduct. There is one strenuous section for a breathtaking view that few visitors to Monsaldale get to see but with a let out for anyone just wanting a moderate walk. A gentle stroll along the Wye valley returns us to Ashford village that finished their Well dressing festival on Saturday so the floral displays should still be there for us to enjoy.
