A reasonably easy-going walk, considering the great height ascended, with many opportunities for breathtaking views, great variety of terrain and several points of historical interest.

There are three highly recommended refreshment opportunities on this walk (and four conveniences); however, although the first WC is just under halfway through the walk, the refreshments are all quite close to the end. The first refreshment opportunity is at Longshaw / Fox House (see Waymark 21).

The Fox House pub serves very good food at not unreasonable prices. It's a large pub (with accommodation too) and welcomes walkers. However it's always busy and especially so on Sundays, when it's a very popular Sunday Dinner venue for huge numbers of people from Sheffield, Chesterfield, Dronfield and many other places too. It does allow children in and there is a pleasant outdoor seating area for the warmer weather.

Longshaw Estate Café (National Trust) offers wonderful food, most of which is delicious home-made fayre. If you're lucky you'll get mushroom soup on offer, made with mushrooms gathered from the estate that day. The food here is very much the organic wholefood (Cranks) style. There is also a giftshop which sells Kendal Mint Cake and sweets and ice creams. I think you'll find the café prices reasonable (not cheap, but reasonable!) but in my opinion the sweets and ice creams are expensive.

The other refreshment opportunity occurs at the end of the walk at Grindleford Station Café (see Waymark 27). It's not a British Rail Buffet!! The café is legendary amongst locals and walkers for its friendly atmosphere, hearty and heart-warming food and one-pint mugs of tea and hot chocolate. You can get all-day breakfasts here (vegetarian and meat-based) and a whole host of other foods. They also sell many maps, timetable books and walkers' guides for the local area. Note that they do charge 20p to use the toilet if you are not eating or drinking there as well.
