peak district walks

matlock bridge darley dale walk

19. Matlock Bridge, Darley Dale 3rd August 2013.

Quite a long drive for us to Matlock but we would have to go to the outer reaches of the peak district sometime. Parking at Matlock station head south east to the traffic lights cross the road and turn left down the path running north west alongside the river Derwent. This is about where the directions print out must have fallen out of my pocket fortunately I was able to get a signal on my phone and found the same walk again. The path veers away from the river onto the road then back onto the path towards Darley Dale and The Square and Compass public house. Away down the path past Flatts Farm towards the railway line then the path follows the railtrack south east back to the river Derwent and back to Matlock station.
