Castleton and Hope Peak District Grade: Leisurely
Castleton and Hope are two classic villages located in the heart of the Peak District. Our circular walk begins in Castleton and takes in the Hope Valley with views of the dramatic Winnat’s Pass, Peveril Castle perched high above and the numerous show caves dotted around the hillside. From here we head across open fields to the village of Hope where we will have time for a refreshment break at one of the coffee shops. We then follow the river back through the valley to Castleton with time to pop into the visitor centre.
Grade: Leisurely The walk is 5.5 miles with 180 metres of ascent taken at a leisurely pace in order to enjoy the surroundings to the full. The walk is on footpaths and some quiet, minor roads.
