peak district walks

49. Calver, Hassop, Pilsley and Bubnell peak district walk

49. Calver, Hassop, Pilsley and Bubnell. 29th March 2014.

Parking on the small slip road at Calver traffic lights we headed off south down the B6001 a short way then taking cross lane on the right then up to the t junction turn left then right onto folds lane, straight to thend and follow the path round the side heading south east to bramley wood and following the wood across bramley lane, keep going along Bank wood reaching school lane then head turning right towards Hassop. The eyre arms offered a good pint and a sherry. Sat outside with our drinks in the sunshine deciding how many cyclists should be wearing multi-coloured lycra outfits. Hassop hall is very grand as was the very roman looking catholic church beside it. Just by the farm down the road is a path on the left which crosses over rymas brook and Birchill bank wood then across the A619 and on to Pilsley and the Devonshire arms with it’s chatsworth blue guttering, doors and windows for a pint of Chatsworth Gold. North east along the road then left on a path which crosses the A619 and Rymars brook again. North to wheatlands road and on to Bubnell following the river derwent back to Calver and a final drink at the other Eyre arms.
