Castleton, Losehill Farm and Hope

Most of the walks from Castleton involve strenuous climbs to the heights of Lose Hill or Mam Tor - and very fine routes they are. This walk by contrast, traverses the slopes of the ridge below these hills. It runs across pastures and along tracks and finishes with a very pleasant stroll by a river. The views are excellent, except to the north of course and it makes for a fine short day out, leaving time to explore Castleton and Hope and for a visit to one of the show caves. In the first half of the walk, many of the stiles have been replaced by gates, making things easier and the signposting is excellent.

A lovely walk on varied paths and with the benefit of tea shops and pubs in both Hope and Castleton. We joined the walk midway as staying at Caravan Motorhome Club Site just outside Castleton. Turn right out the pedestrian access, follow road towards Castleton for a few hundred yards and turn right up a rough lane by Losehill Hall. This brings you soon to WM14.

If you have a large dog who refuses to negotiate stiles, this walk is NOT for you. Our Husky, who admittedly is afraid of his own shadow, steadfastly refused at least two! Thank goodness for memory map as the resulting detour could have been much longer.
