Route Outline

This pleasant Peak District walk is based around the Manifold Valley and has lots of interest with the added bonus of an optional visit to Thor's Cave. The route may seem complicated with the many grid references quoted but it is difficult to go off route as the signed paths are very clear as you pass through some fine "White Peak" countryside in the dales of Staffordshire.
