Walk Description:

The terrific Tuesday series of Explorer WALX starts from picturesque Thorpe.  Literally, at the gateway to Dovedale, this appealing little village is set in some of the most beautiful countryside.

Close to the junction of the beautiful rivers Dove and Manifold, it was originally a group of farms and isolated cottages around the tiny church of St Leonard.

Designed to help you to keep improving and get noticeable results, mainly on footpaths through fields, hills and views. 

Please note:  Allow 90 minutes for these series of walks. 

Please bring your own hot drink.
