Peak District: Millstones, Rocky Outcrops and Longshaw Estate Moderate
A varied guided walk taking in some of the iconic features of this part of the Peak District including remnants of its historic past. There are dramatic quarries and edges, abandoned millstones plus an Iron Age hill fort. Add to that a beautiful silver birch woodland, stretches of moorland and the gentler scenery of a National Trust estate and you have the makings of a memorable day out.
Grade: Moderate. The walk is 8.5 miles long with 600m of ascent. A reasonable level of fitness is required. The route is mainly on moorland paths with some steeper and less defined sections.
