A quite demanding walk, more for distance than the conditions underfoot. Some parts of this route are quite rarely walked, though paths and stiles are easily found even if a little overgrown. This area is gently undulating and much of the route is climbing or descending, though not too steeply, the steepest being the descent to Alsop en le Dale and return climbing along same path.
The village of Tissington passed through on the return, is best known as one of the more enthusiastic in the Derbyshire custom of well-dressing.
There is much of interest, from good views in many areas to a curious Celtic cross in Bradbourne churchyard which may even have pagan origins.
The pub used on this walk is the Red Lion in Kniveton. This is a pleasant village pub offering a varied and good-value menu and a choice of reasonable beers. There is little provision or space outside for those wishing to carry their own food, with only one table and a corner seat in the corner of the car parking area to the side of the entrance door and a raised beer-garden to the rear of the pub, accessible via steps from the side of the pub, turning to left from the outer door.
