A quite demanding walk, with quite a lot of climbs and descents, offering some superb views of an area of Derbyshire not seen by many other than walkers, local farmers and glider pilots from the nearby club at Great Hucklow.

It crosses a deep valley just above Bretton Clough and climbs onto heathy moor above Abney. Most paths were passable and stiles present when last walked.

The pub originally used on this walk Ye Olde Bull's Head in Little Hucklow, a former 12th Century village Inn. Has since closed and is now just a private house. This was a popular village pub and will be missed. There are alternative pubs passed close by on this route. Firstly The Shoulder of Mutton in Bradwell. Detailed from way-mark 16, adding only about 120 mtrs, they are walker friendly and offer a good value menu and some interesting beers. Probably a better choice than offered by the Olde Bull’s Head really. Also a little further off the route is the Queen Anne in Great Hucklow, from way-mark 31, which requires a slight detour of about half a mile. They too are walker friendly though offer less choice in food and beers.

Walked route 14/2/2011. Outward route from Eyam is initially climbing, but views from the top are worth the effort. Panoramic views of multiple gritstone edges and Kinder plateau, particularly on a clear day, are excellent. Downside is nasty steep muddy track down from Bradwell Edge to village. After rain this is really a mudslide and walking poles an advantage. Overall though a good days walk.

I did the above walk with two friends last Tuesday. The weather was glorious. The walk was excellent in all aspects. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Also Crossing the stone stile (map ref: 180804) wasnt a place for anyone liable to stumble as the ground was very rough, and full of hidden holes. Otherwise a very good walk.
