High Peak Trail and Harborough Rocks
High Peak Trail and Harborough Rocks
Looking east from the point where the Limestone Way crosses the High Peak Trail. The rocks in the background are the dolomite outcrops of Harborough Rocks; the outcrops are larger and more a little impressive further along the Trail.
High Peak Trail
The High Peak Trail follows the route of the Cromford and High Peak Railway which was completed in 1831 and axed as part of the Beeching cuts in the 1960s.
Limestone Way
A 46 mile route through the heart of the Derbyshire limestone dales, heading south from Castleton through Peak Forest, Millerís Dale, Flagg, Monyash, Youlgreave, Winster, Matlock, Bonsall, Ible, Parwich, Tissington, Thorpe, crossing the Dove to Marten Hill, Lower Ellastone and finishing in the Dove valley at Rocester.

The Midshires Way
Not as well known as the coastal, Transpennine or Coast-to-Coast paths, this is nevertheless one of the longest of the long distance paths, stretching for 225 miles/362 km between Bledlow in Buckinghamshire and Comstall, Stockport. It passes through Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Greater Manchester.
As a multi-user route, it largely follows bridleways and quiet lanes, but in many places has alternative sections using footpaths away from road traffic.
