Grindleford Rocks - A 350 Million Year Old Ramble

Public Transport based walk with Chris Barstow.

14.5 mi


The Peak District is such a beautiful, varied landscape and it’s formation is a story worth telling. From Grindleford, we shall make our way along the River Derwent before a small climb to the historic village of Eyam. We will then take one of the many limestone valleys of the White Peak, which will bring us back to the River Derwent. There we will enjoy amazing panoramic views of Curbar and Froggatt Edges, which will be traversed before our return to the station. Along the way we will travel 350 million years back in time (using our imaginary DeLoreans revving up to 88mph) to the Carboniferous Period. A walk suitable for new geologists.
