Longshaw Estate - Curbar Gap - Baslow - Calver Bridge - Longshaw Estate

This walk starts from the National Trust car park situated at Haywood at the southern end of the Longshaw Estate, the most southerly of its three car parks. After a short stretch on the road it traverses the gritstone edges of Froggatt, Curbar and Baslow, with some superb scenery to the west over the Derwent Valley. At the southern end of Baslow Edge, a very short detour leads to Wellington's Monument, standing at a height of 1,000ft. The route then descends into the attractive village of Baslow, where it follows a quiet lane then a footpath on the opposite side of the River Derwent leading to Calver Bridge. From here we pass the large, converted Calver Mill and continue to follow the river to the village of Froggatt. From the village a path leads into Froggatt Wood from where there is a steepish ascent back to Haywood and the starting point.

A very enjoyable scenic walk, great views and plenty of chances for refreshment on the way around. Could have scored this a 5 but for the route from waypoint 15 to 17 through Froggatt wood. The paths where a mess of deep wet peaty mud, very wide and others had tried to scrabble around making them worse. We got lost and all of the felled trees on the slopes below WP17 nearly made our way unpassable. Spoiled a little what was otherwise a great walk.
