Starting off on the just a mile or so south of Bamford and on the edge of the village of Shatton, this walk starts by following country lanes south. Once the tarmac ends the route follows a track west round the top of Shatton Moor, past a tall mast and then eventually up to the 417m summit with an ancient tumulus adorning the peak. The view from Abney Moor is lovely, with uninterrupted views south over the valleys and peaks.

From the summit the route heads over Smelting Hill and Offerton Moor, past a series of cairns and tumuli, to join a descending path to Offerton Hall and some stunning views over the Hope Valley. From this position it is also possible to see almost the entire length of Stanage Edge on the skyline opposite. Once down at valley level the route then follows a section of the River Derwent to arrive back at the start.
