The walk is approximately 11 miles (18km) with an elevation gain of 300m (1,000ft.). There are a number of steep sections.

Today's walk is all about rimming the glorious Chatsworth Estate. 

Starting in historic Baslow we walk through the lower estate to the house before heading steeply up through the woods behind the house to the Elizabethan tower that commands wide reaching views across the Capability Brown designed estate.

From the tower, we explore the various water features of the estate including a ruined Aquaduct that brought water to the estate from the reservoirs that command the landscape about Chatsworth House.

Eventually, we make our way out onto East Moor where the views open up before following Beeley Brook down to the village of Beeley. 

Back through the estate to the hamlet of Edensor before making our way back to Baslow.

Micro Events – IMPORTANT, Please read the following before you sign up to this event:

  • Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are extremely mild, or who lives or is in a support bubble with someone showing symptoms, is asked not to attend. This is in line with the government’s coronavirus advice.
  • All are required to practice social distancing – staying 2m (not 1m) apart at all times, including the lunch stop.
  • Please join events within around one hour’s travel from your home, rather than travelling longer distances to get there.
  • Unfortunately, there won’t be any planned pub / café stops en route or at the end, and please don’t share sweets or snacks with others – we’re sorry!
  • Public transport use to the start point is discouraged, as this is a non-essential journey. No car sharing to the start point unfortunately either.
  • Please bring your own hand sanitising gel for your own use throughout the day. Use of face coverings is at your own choice.
  • Each person can only attend one OutdoorLads micro event a week. (Leaders to leave at least three days between events they lead.)
  • On walks, one person to hold open gates and allow everyone to walk through – so minimising surfaces that multiple people touch. 
  • Be aware that opportunities for toilet stops may be minimal if facilities are closed.
  • Please, please cancel at your earliest opportunity if you are unable to attend or are unwell, so that we can allow others to take up these valuable event spaces.
  • Much as it's difficult - no handshakes or hugs!
