Walk description
A beautiful moderate 7 mile walk 
The rural serenity of Millers Dale belies its early role in the industrial revolution.
The walk takes us from the Peak District town of Tideswell. We walk along the valley of Millers Dale and pass through two industrial settlements from the industrial revolution. Water Cum Jolley Dale and Arkwright’s 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 two fairly steep hills approximately a quarter of a mile each. The first climb is on a road and the second is on a rough rocky path which leads to the top of the hill. Here we can pause for another break and 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.
