WALX Derwent and Dales

Walk Description:

This week the terrific Tuesday series of Explorer WALX starts from the village of Hognaston, the backdrop of Carsington Water with many varied routes to choose from with impressive views of the reservoir and beyond. 

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

We alternate these locations on a rota basis meeting at Thorpe, Hognaston, Ellastone, Mappleton and Mayfield in the Ashbourne area. 

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

Please bring your own drink along for coffee.
