White Lodge - Water cum Jolly Dale - Miller's Dale - High Dale - Brushfield - White Lodge

An interesting and quite demanding walk, with some steep climbs and descents, using the high-level concessionary path along the delightfully named Water cum Jolly Dale, which may not be suitable if you are not steady on your feet. The path is narrow and there are sections with steep drops to the river some 100 metres or so below.

Most of the route is along field-paths and sections of the former railway line now used as the Monsal Trail. There is some road-walking, though only short sections. If following the lower riverside concessionary path along Water cum Jolly Dale to Litton Mill, the road sections are longer.

When walked all paths were clear and mostly well-waymarked.

The pub used on this walk is the Angler's Rest in Miller's Dale. This is a walker-friendly pub, even offering a Hikers Bar, though they appreciate muddy boots being covered. There is a reasonable choice on the menu, which seems good value. They offer a range of beers on hand-pumps, the mainstays being nothing special, though there are guest beers on occasions. Outside there is little space for eating your own food, with a small raised area outside the door with a few tables, otherwise there is a sturdy fence in the car park beside the river.
