David & Steve 
A beautiful moderate 7 mile walk where the rural serenity of Miller’s Dale belies its early role in the industrial revolution. The walk takes us from the Peak District town of Tideswell along the valley of Miller’s Dale and passes through two settlements from the industrial revolution: Water-Cum-Jolly Dale and Arkwrights Mill where child labour was used.

Generally well defined paths alongside the River Wye where there are wild orchids and flowers. It is possible to spot kingfishers and other birds. We will stop near here for our lunch. There may be a small tea shop but please bring sandwiches and drinks just in case it is closed.

We leave the valley and ascend into the hills where we will enjoy wonderful views of the surrounding area. Eventually we pass through the village of Litton where we may stop for a drink at the pub.

Please wear boots and come prepared for wet weather. The paths may be muddy and slippery and walking poles are recommended.
