The walk is 7 miles with some gentle changes in elevation as we dip down into the valley and back up again

Starting with stunning views from Alport Heights we will traverse the valley on quiet county roads and farmland to the quaint town of Kirk Ireton.

Here we will stop for lunch and get warm at the Barley Mow Inn. This real ale pub in a building dating from the 17th century is like no other.  Some reviews on trip advisor say it better than I could: "a quintessential glimpse into English yesteryear... but without the plague, naturally....This is a real pub. Food is not served beyond pork scratchings and thankfully children are not permitted."

After that plunge back in time, we will revisit the present, heading gently back across the valley crossing fields, farms and the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway.
