8 places left
This event is part of the Outdoorlads *BIG Peaky Weekender* and participation is intended for those attending the weekend event.
About the hike
We start this 8.4 mile (13.5km) hike by heading south from the BIG Peaky Weekender venue - we'll set off for Ashford in the Water and and then meander along the River Wye before heading off up through Little Shacklow Wood.
From there, we'll hike up to Magpie Mine, a well-preserved disused lead mine near the village of Sheldon in Derbyshire, England.
Once we've taken in the views, we'll continue our walk west until we get to Deep Dale, we'll make our way to Monsall Dale and finish with a short stint on the Monsall Trail, going through the old railway tunnel on our way back to the lodgings (FYI: If you're determined to get an ice cream you will be welcome to head up to Monsall Head, before we go through the tunnel, this is additional steps not included in the 8.4 miles)

Food & drink
Please ensure you have a packed lunch and plenty of water.
There is a small pub half way around this route where we may stop for a drink, but the outside seating area is limited. Other than this there is no where to get supplies on this walk, other than an additional climb to Monsal Head (where there's another pub, and ice cream van), however this is not included in the 8.4 miles / 13.5km and near the end of the walk, so you may decide to hold out for the ODL bar onsite.
