A quite demanding walk in a wide loop, keeping mostly to field-paths and tracks, avoiding much of the quarry activity in the area.

One section passes a former fluorspar opencast working near to Little Hucklow. Though the marked path through the site still exists, there is a diverted route, which avoids the active areas of the site.

The most demanding climb on the route is along the Caves Dale section of the Limestone Way from Castleton, passing the ruins of Peveril Castle.

The pub 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 is another pub passed on this route, the Shoulder of Mutton in Bradwell. This is about three quarters of the way around this route, 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.

Did this walk on the 21/09/2013 nice walk. The car park is now £5 all day. But facing the car park entry on the road there is free parking for 4 or 5 cars. Jeff, Barbara, Kath and Millie the dog.
