The best walks Derbyshire has to offer: The Limestone Way

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Looking to take advantage of the mild spring weather we’ve been treated to? The Limestone Way is the walk you need! 

Running from Castleton to Rocester, through the White Peak and Peak District National Park, The Limestone Way is a truly beautiful Derbyshire walk, and was named as such for the beautiful limestone scenery you will be treated along the way.

What we love about the Limestone Way is that along the route it covers a number of must see Derbyshire spots. From Castleton, the route runs up Cave Dale, past Peak Forest, down Hay Dale and Peter Dale, parallel to Monks Dale then through the village of Millers Dale. It then passes Blackwell and runs through Flagg and Monyash, across Cales Dale and past Youlgreave through Bradford Dale.

Which way? The Limestone Way.

The route then continues past Robin Hood’s Stride to the villages of Elton, Winster and Bonsall, after which it crosses the Midshires Way. The trail runs through Parwich and crosses the Tissington Trail before running through Tissington itself and Thorpe, then down into Dovedale at Ellastone on its approach to Rocester.

Don’t quite have time to tackle the 46 mile route? Don’t worry, there are a number of car parks along the way, so you can pick your start point accordingly!
