Monyash (Bagshaw Dale) - Magpie Mine - Sheldon - Deep Dale - Monyash

An easy, quite short walk in this popular area of Derbyshire, staying mostly on high ground. The route is not often very wet except for the first section along Bagshaw Dale.

Most of the route follows field-paths and tracks though some road-walking is required, mostly around Monash and though Sheldon Village.

The pub used on this walk is the Cock & Pullet in Sheldon. This is a quite recent development; until it opened, Sheldon had been a 'dry' village for about 25 years. The former village pub the Devonshire Arms was next door and above on the other side of a narrow driveway. This is a popular walker-friendly pub and can be busy. They offer a good-value menu at reasonable prices, the set roast dinner being particularly good value. They offer a good range of hand-pulled beers, extended since my previous visit and including Greene King's 'Abbot' and Timothy Taylor 'Landlord' when walked.

Great walk even in the rain. Made it a bit more energetic with the wind and rain but overall very refreshing - Some of the stiles are a little hazardous but overall nothing too drastic. There are plenty of places with farm animals so unfortunately not dog friendly and the height and state of the stile would cause issues. Navigation and comments excellent so no getting lost.
