A Walk in the Peak District

The Peak District in Derbyshire, England is a good place to get away for a few days and enjoy some great walks in this scenic area. We were staying in the outskirts of Baslow so decided to have a long walk through the edge of Chatsworth Estate then up the hills behind Baslow towards the Curbar Edge then down to Calver for lunch at the Bridge Inn.


The first portion of this walk took us on a small path which skirted round the edge of the Chatswoth Estate and into Baslow. We passed through the famous Cannon kissing gate which is a uniquely designed gate to gain access to Chatsworth Estate from Baslow. This kissing gate was inspired by Mrs. Jill Cannon and is specially designed for wheelchair users.

As we passed through Baslow there were some lovely thatched roof cottages at the edge of the River Derwent. We then walked up the hill behind Baslow to traverse along towards the Curbar Edge which is a rocky ridge popular for walking and climbing.

There were some great views along this path as we looked over the rolling hills of the Peak District.

We stopped for lunch at the Bridge Inn in Calver where we had a wonderful tapas style menu and some much needed local beer to quench our thirst.


After lunch we made our way back to Baslow following a path along the side of the River Derwent.
