The walk takes us away from the city and over the quaint Darley Abbey toll bridge before heading for Duffield and Milford, where the hills start to appear and the valley is more pronounced.


Times will be reconfirmed nearer the date as the train timetable is in a state of flux. Expect to catch 08:00 from Uttoxeter to Derby. Return from Belper (trains hourly).


The cheapest ticket is probably a Derbyshire Wayfarer (£6.70 if over 60 years old). See web for details. They sell them at Redferns Cottage in advance and various other locations. This ticket can be used on trains and buses throughout Derbyshire including some neighbouring areas.
