Woodland Walk with Fran Halsall: Bretton Clough
Join woodland expert Fran Halsall for a walk in Bretton Clough, one of the Peak District’s less well known and most peaceful valleys. The route will retrace part of the old packhorse route between Eyam and Bradwell, passing through both moorland and woodland habitats. By visiting in spring you will experience the bluebells and other wildflowers that make this ancient woodland so special. A set of notes on tree ID designed to accompany the walk will be available to download afterwards.
You will learn how to identify many of our wonderful trees and plants and there will be plenty of time to ask questions and enjoy the stunning surroundings.
The walk is 3,5 miles. Please note that there are uneven footpaths and sloping, rocky ground throughout the walk. This is a steep sided valley and, although we will follow moderate gradients throughout, it is a 190m descent to the valley floor and a 175m climb back up to the moorland.
Meeting Point:Park and meet at the bend on Sir William Hill Road, the minor road from Eyam to Bretton at SK209777.
