This is a relaxed late afternoon walk of approximately 7 miles (11km) with 200m elevation

How about something a little different? 

This is a relaxed and leisurely walk around the picturesque market town of Bakewell. Bakewell is busy with tourists and sightseers but it is in the evenings that you get to see the true nature of the town with its honeyed stone and glorious countryside.

Setting off from central Bakewell, we head out towards Ashford on the Water, ambling alongside the River Wye. This chocolate box of a village has cute cottages and pretty riverside views. 

He head out of Ashford and up onto the Monsal Trail, a well used track that used to carry trains to Buxton and beyond. The views open up as we make our way back into Bakewell, feeling calm and relaxed from a great evening walk.
