This event is no longer available.

Starting from the Old Dog to descend into Thorpe village and down into the Dove valley, following the river upstream over the stepping stones and passing the landmarks of Lovers Leap, Tissington Spires, Raynard's Cave, Dove Holes caves and Ilam Rock to name but a few to the hamlet of Milldale for lunch.

From there we leave the river to climb out of the valley passing Hanson Grange, belonging to the Abbey of Burton upon Trent, to Bostern Grange farm close to a Bronze Age burial mound with at least 3 skeletons and a cremation, following the footpaths southward to join the Limestone Way back to the start for a well deserved drink.

Distance: 9 miles

Leader: Mick Cornfield
