Public Transport based walk with Ken Banks.
A varied walk along hillsides, through woodsand beside rivers.
From Hope station we wander to the edge of the delightful, if unfortunately named village of Shatton before a steep accent part way up to Shatton Moor. We then take the bridleway across to Offerton Hall with weather permitting splendid views across to Stanage Edge and Burbage Rocks. The route then drops back down to the River Derwent which we follow to Leadmill Bridge. The walk then undulates up through Dunge and Callow Woods and with luck their blue bells, followed by a gentle accent up onto Smelting Hill and Abney Moor. We then drop steeply down to Bradwell Village and go back along the valley to Hope.
