A quite demanding walk with a good range of paths and tracks, some little-walked and tricky to follow the line. Other areas are well-walked, even to excess in places.

All paths were present when walked with only two stiles off the line shown on the map, but were present. One gated stile near Cutthorpe Hall was so narrow it was impossible to get through with a day-pack on. There are some good views, some in surprising areas. The first section of the route is walked in both directions.

The pub used on this walk is The Old Pump in Barlow. This is a pleasant village pub which can become busy, being quite close to the outskirts of Chesterfield. The pub is carpeted throughout, so covering muddy boots is essential. They offer a good-value menu and some interesting beers on hand pumps.

We walked this route on Tuesday 22nd June 2010. The comments/instructions for Waypoint 40 state that a footpath has been diverted and that the road should be followed to Point 41. The new stile (point 41) has been blocked with a stone wall and the old stile (point 40) has been reopened with a wooden squeeze stile. The footpath sign is there but is resting on the nearby wall.
