Overview

We start at Ambergate station in the Derwent valley, climbing through ancient woodland to the historic village of Crich (famous as Cardale in Peak Practice). We then ascend to the Sherwood Foresters memorial tower. The descent skirts a disused quarry, crosses the Tramway Museum's tram track near to its terminus, and then winds down the hillside to the Cromford canal. We follow the canal towpath back to Ambergate.

There will be stops for coffee and lunch.

Please register for this walk on Newark Ramblers website where you will also find details of our car share scheme.
