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)
