These are a little more challenging (longer and/or harder) than the normal Sunday ‘A’ walks. The walks vary from very hilly to very wild to just plain long and all combinations in between! You will be guaranteed an exciting day in areas you may not have walked before. The walks will normally be held monthly on Saturdays usually starting at 09.00 with details posted on the web site or
available from the ‘A-Plus’ Walks Organiser. As the walks are more challenging
and to ensure you have an enjoyable and rewarding walk, please read the notes below before booking on a walk.
Due to the COVID-19, we all need to take extra steps to stay safe. Please follow all safety advice given by the walk leader, including the latest guidelines on physical distancing. For more information about COVID-19 and Ramblers' group walks, please see our guidance for walkers on the coronavirus pages of the Ramblers website.

MATLOCK MASH-UP, Derbyshire
Leader: David Moore
I planed this walk earlier in the year with a late finish so that we could have fish and chips afterwards and watch the spectacular parade of illuminated boats which form part of the Matlock Bath illuminations. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 the boats have been cancelled however the area is still well illuminated in the evening for us to enjoy the atmosphere and the fish and chips
The walk will be 19m and will take in some great sites, if you have never walked Giddy Edge on High Tor now is your chance (optional for those with a head for heights!). We then head to the Lumsdale valley to see the water falls, unfortunately the historic site is closed due to covid-19 but we will get a glimpse of part of them, its then onto Sydnope dale falls where we may catch site of the Mandarin ducks. We then head past Cowley wood engine house to the mysterious Router rocks where there is much to see. Then on to hermit’s cave and Robin Hood’s stride before returning to the start.
We will meet ready to leave at 9am Infront of the Matlock Bath railway station. Parking is available on the adjacent car park (address Station road off Dale road (A6) Matlock Bath DE4 3NT) I believe it is £6 for 24hrs cash only. NB Head torches will be essential for the last hour of our return journey. There will be chain hand rails on-route so hand sanitiser will be required.
