Duration 2 hours and 30 minutes

Join the South West Peak Landscape Partnership for a guided walk and talk through the peaceful Goyt Valley on Tuesday 14 May at 11:00am!

We will meet at the parking area for Errwood Hall where we will begin our circular walk and discuss the history of this unique area. Along the way we will walk through woodland and along streams discussing the flora and fauna of this area that serves so many important functions for both people and animals. Our route will take us to a small cemetery perched high on a hill and then down to the ruins of Castedge Farmhouse. If time and conditions allow we will then proceed down to St. Joseph's Shrine, a small circular shrine in a picturesque wooded valley.

Be aware of some steep and muddy tracks along the route. The walk will be ~3.5 miles long and will last about 2.5 hours. To ensure that everyone has a great time please make sure that appropriate dress is worn for the weather. Well-behaved dogs are welcome. Be aware that there are no facilities on site but there are limited facilities at the Derbyshire Bridge Car Park.

A suggested donation of £2 for this walk is payable at the conclusion of the walk.

Booking is Essential. To book please send a brief email to:
