Lathkill Dale

26 June 2022

The Sutton-in-Ashfield  Rambling Club continue their summer programme with another attractive  walk in the White Peak area. This  ramble  will explore  the Lathkill Dale, one  of the most spectacular limestone valleys in the UK. The main 12 mile route will start at Monyash and finish at Winster. As usual there will be a shorter walk option.

 The club are always very pleased to welcome new members.

From the village of Monash we will traverse a ridge above Lathkill Dale before making a steady descent down to the River Lathkill. After a very  picturesque walk by the river we divert up to the village of Over Haddon for the lunch break. A choice of a picnic  by the car park with toilets available or you may wish to visit the Lathkil Hotel.

In the afternoon we  drop down to Conksbury Bridge and then head south into the pretty village of Youlgreave . Onwards then along the  beautiful Bradford Dale down to the old sheep wash. We then head south along a number of field paths passing  Lowfields Farm and Rock Farm up to the village of Elton.  The final section of this lovely walk  cuts across to Winster village for a 5.45 pm  coach departure home. There may be time for refreshments in the village  before departure. Coach pick-up points below. No need to pre-book.
