The Duffield Skyline and Other Walks in Derbyshire
The picturesque and charming village of Duffield and the surrounding areas of beauty in Derbyshire have fantastic walking routes for both the experienced hiker and the more casual walker. Here are a few of them.
This detailed and informative walking guide contains 20 circular routes, from 4-1/2 miles to 20 miles in length, with each route consisting of four components.
The routes have been planned to minimize road walking, mainly crossing fields and tracks. They will take you past some interesting sights including churches, farms, World Heritage sites, pubs and mills.
The routes are all within Derbyshire and start from Duffield, Belper, Allestree, Carsington Water, Chatsworth, Castleton, Ogston and Tissington.
Varied and challenging - if you choose - this guide is a must for walking enthusiasts, whether local or visitors to Derbyshire.
