From Alport the route follows a high-level path looking down on the downriver end of pretty Bradford Dale, then descending at Youlgreave to the river, crossing an ancient clapper bridge and taking a path on the far side of the river, following the river upstream.

Then a few Derbyshire-type fields are crossed, followed by a descent to the tiny stream that flows into the top end of Bradford Dale. Turning left, the route then follows the shallow valley for a while before ascending to pass by Spout House.

Continuing, several dramatic rocky outcrops are passed until dropping down onto a lane, one of the area's mediaeval water troughs is seen at the side of the road. A short lane-walk is then done until a signpost takes the route again across high-level fields and into a gorgeous wood full of birdlife.

Another short lane-walk and a field-walk until passing a campsite, then the route drops down for a pleasant walk through the very pretty Alport Village and back to the car.

A group of us did this walk on May 22nd 2013. The section between WP 11 to WP 15 was very difficult. It was very wet at WP 11, despite there having been little rain in the preceding days, and there was no 'little bridge' as described. We had to place large stones in the mud / water to get through. From there through to WP 15, there were no signs, or any sign of a path, probably because very few walkers attempt to go that way. We actually couldn't find our way along the described route, as the gates & styles didn't seem to exist, but picked it up again at WP 15. It seemed like the landowner has deliberately made it difficult to navigate. Apart from that section, it was a lovely walk.
