Starting from the town famous for the Bakewell Pudding made by accident around 1820, the Stephen Downing murder case and being the market centre amongst other things, we head off up the hill to the old railway station to join the railway track bed now the last section of the Monsal Trail.
The heading towards Haddon Hall to join the bridleway to the river then to the village of Rowsley, after a visit to Caudwell's Mill built around 1874 for flour milling we join the Derwent Valley Heritage Way going north to the west of the river to enter the Chatsworth estate at Calton Lees from here we take the bridleway to Calton Houses.
Then across the open park to Edensor with fine views of the House and hopefully some dear, following the quiet lane to the top of the hill before descending through the wood then the golf course back to Bakewell to sample the pudding.
Distance: 10 miles
