It is a 10 mile walk over moderate terrain, there are some steep steps in places.

A walk through three picturesque Derbyshire villages, climbing steps, traversing fields, scaling quarry walls and managing a quiet pint of ale on the way.

This walk will leave the civilisation of Duffield behind and venture on through field and valley onto the Midshire's way-an ancient pathway. We will eventually meet a former railway line which passes through Coxbench. Later we will pass under a modern dual carriage way en route to Drum Hill camp site and look down on the village of Little Eaton.

As we pass by lots of disused quarries we will have outstanding views across to Nottinghamshire and beyond. On our return journey we will have time to stop in a local hostelry to sample their beer and hopefully still manage to walk home along the banks of the Derwent River.
