Photo from the walk - Flask Edge from Dronfield Woodhouse

County/Area - Derbyshire

Author - Jake Robertson

Length - 10.0 miles / 16.3 km

Ascent - 1650 feet / 500 metres

Time - 6 hours 40 minutes

Grade - moderate

Sometimes, a fine viewpoint and prominent hill is best reached by a walk through the foothills and vales beneath it so as to build excitement and also enjoy superb countryside that might otherwise be ignored. This lengthy but fairly gentle stroll from the Derbyshire town of Dronfield is a nice example. A GPS File is available for download (see walk description).

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers. Travel restrictions for exercise in Wales and Scotland will be lifted in early July.
