Brief Description

 

The walk begins from Smith's Island LONG STAY car park (£5.00); full directions on the day. The walk is largely along field paths and good tracks. From the car park we begin climbing almost immediately over the golf course and through Manner's Wood (500ft). At the top we'll stop for coffee. We then take a field path through Calton Pastures and just before the Russian Cottage we drop down through a small wood and downhill to Edensor. Good views of Chatsworth House all the way down. From there we walk along the river to Calton Lees. (Lunch at picnic area just before Calton Lees. 4 tables if we're lucky!!) From there it is a gentle mile long climb to Calton Houses and then a short, steeper final ascent to a higher track back along Calton Pastures. Total ascent over 1.5miles, 500ft. From the top, level field paths and then back through Manner's Wood to the car park.
