Starting from Chatsworth House we cross the river to Edensor village taking the footpath across the parkland to Calton houses.
There we pick up the bridleway through Rowsleymoor wood to Rowsley with a chance for a visit to the working flour mill and a cup of tea in the outlet village.
Then we follow the bridleway and footpaths through Smeltingmill wood to the village of Beeley.
Climbing through the woodland to the open Beeley moor with fine views of the Derwent valley, then crossing the moor into the woods to pass the Swiss lake & cottage, on to the Emperor lake, built for the Tsar of Russia to feed the Emperor fountain, to reach the Hunting tower.
Finally, we descent down through the woods back to the house.
