Walks In Calver


Above Stoney Middleton Time taken – 1 hour This walk was taken on a rainy Sunday afternoon in mid-December and was intended to be short and quick walk around Stoney Middleton and whilst not the longest walk I have taken opened my eyes to the beauty that the hills behind the Stoney “corridor” have to offer. Humphrey and his little chum Ash set off from Trinkey Lane, by the allotments towards The Nook and Moon Inn, via a grassy path that runs securely by the road and ends at the Moon Inn car park. We then...

Calver to Calver – via Froggat, Time taken 1 1/2 Hours This is a walk that really starts in a simple cow field, after the caravan site, but with a massive WOW factor. This walk has the majestic back drop of Froggatt and Curbar edge’s, something that when I remember to look up always leaves fills me with amazement and awe!     The walk actually starts at Calver Mill, walking through the camp site into the fields, with the river to the right.  You walk across the field, to the...

Mable attempts Froggatt Edge via Curbar Time taken - 4 hours Of the walks we tend to do together now, this has probably been the most challenging for Mable as there is an element of uphill walking involved, initially, and whilst she was as fit and flighty as a flea in her youth, she has struggled in the last few years with general health problems that now limit the amount of exercise she can partake in. Apart from the incline at the start, however, the majority of the walk is quite level and easy but it was just a little too long...
Froggat Edge via Curbar - Peak District Walks
We LOVE low temp's, so we set off to Great Longstone, where the walk started. These fish seemed quite happy under the ice in a trough outside one of the village cottages. This impressive line of troughs was ice free, though. Probably because the water was running all the time. The wall surrounding the churchyard was a bit of a shock - it was in a TERRIBLE state. It really needs some care and attention.......... The first signs of spring, as usual - SNOWDROPS! It does the heart good to see the...

Stoney Middleton and Coombsdale Time taken - 2 hours Having and allotment at Stoney Middleton , in the Peak District, for some time now, I have tried part of this walk on a number of occasions, with Mable – taking her over to Calver Sough Nurseries for seeds and the like on warm summer days, Since Mable passed away, I have used the car to traverse what really is a very short ride from Stoney to Calver traffic lights. It has only been since the arrival of Humphrey that I have sought safe avenues to walk “Mad Dog...
