I have looked at 1 or 2 of the walksbut your directions don`t appear to say if the walks are suitable to walk with a dog(large).

We recently came across you wonderful web site and have tried the Shining Cliff Wood walk and the Whatstandwell / Holloway / Crich so far. The walks are really easy to follow as the instructions are clear and not complicated. Thank you ! We hope to try more very soon

Did the Baslow/Chatsworth/Dobb Edge walk yesterday. Loved it! I also loved the fact that cafes are highlighted. Always an important factor in our walks. My only comment would be that it would be useful to make the point that the stile at the end of the woods goes over a 6 foot wall. We saw a couple of women trying to get 3 dogs over, as they hadn't expected it to be so high. I look forward to trying more of your walks.

We have done the Torside walk and the Hope to Castleton walk today. The instructions were easy to follow and the walks were lovely. Smashing lunch in the Woodbine Cafe, as recommended. Thank you very much for compiling this website.

We are two social groups which came together to walk number one, 5.50 miles. We walked Ashbourne, Thorp & Mappleton on 18th August and there were no real problems. Just became a little confused by the broken down tree :-) Have photographs if you are interested by return of email.

We enjoyed 4 walks in the Peak District but got in difficulty at certain points on each one.Our favourite was Baslow,Chatsworth&Dobb Edge,the problem arose after passing the adventure playground we didn't see the sign for the Dell.We walked a fair distance up the track looking for it,then took a path to the left up the slope.We came to some very steep steps so we knew we had gone wrong but climbed them coming out on the Tarmac road.We didn't see or hear the water or see the aqueduct or the view of Chatsworth,which was disappointing. If you send me an email I could point out the issues we had on the other walks.

Regarding the comment on the Cromford Bow Wood walk, I went out and had a look over the weekend and you are quite correct. I will update the walk and PDF. Thanks for the comment

Neil. Thanks for the heads up on the Monsal Head postcode issue, I have no idea how that slipped by. I have updated the base documents and corrected the PDFs. Thanks for using the site and commenting on the content.

Hi, I am sorry to bother you. I would like to start walking/hiking in Derbyshire. Whilst I am 60 years old I am a keen walker. I have little experience in this field. I would like to try the Bakewell walk however can you advise me please. Can you recommend overnight accommodation please, bed and breakfast or a pub lodging would be fine.Any help you can give me would be great. Many thanks Ken Midwinter.(Colchester).

We did the Cromford Bow Wood Lea Bridge & High Peak Walk on 17/10/2014. The description is misleading after passing under the Cromford Station bridge. The reference 'to the right' is to the finger post not the entry itself which is on the left of the road. The last field before the lane by Bow Hill Farm is crossed diagonally from the five bar gate. This is not clear when you get there. Otherwise a good description of a very good walk

Melbourne and Breedon on the Hill walk. As of 12 September 2014 the description for this walk is incorrect. As the farmer of this land I suggest you contact me and I will advise you which part of the route has now changed.

Hi, thanks for a great website. We did the Osmaston 1 walk recently and thought you might like to know that the rickety old 5 bar gate as you turn for home has been replaced with a new one and the second gate mentioned is no longer there. Cheers

Hi We did the Osmaston Shirley walk today. Glorious Bank Hol walking weather , thank you. We found an error in the final paragraph where it suggests turning right at the junction previously visited... it should be left at this stage

David, thanks for the comment. I will see if I can place a link into the Peak Rail schedule in to the walk for information on train running dates and times, also if you can let me know how you find any routes to choose to walk thrughout the year. All the best for 2014. Rob

We did the Matlock Walk on New Year's Eve, it was as easy going and a bit boggy in spots as you said. Quite pleasent though, it's a pity that Peak Rail was not running as from the line side path would have been great to see a steam train on the move so close up. Please keep up the work on the site as we plan to try some of the other routes in 2014.

Rob - regarding the Chatsworth walk, I did it today the "correct" way round and it is fine. I can't imagine how we managed to miss the path I mentioned the last time!! My only excuse is that there were a group of picknickers hiding the marker, and the path is not that visible when you approach it after leaving the estate. A jolly good walk actually, so many trees blown down after the winds yesterday.

Paul As far as I am aware the walk is still walid and OK, I hhave seen no notifications of footpath changes or closeures in the area. I will however move the walk towards the top of my list of rewalks and check it out. Sorry about the delay in replying but I have been a bit busy of late. Rob

Could anyone tell me if the route on the Calton Lees/Emperor lake/Chatsworth walk is still valid? I attempted to do this route in reverse (from memory admittedly) and could not find the path that comes up from Beely hilltop and enters the estate at the "stone step stile". I could not see any other track leading off the one that goes to hell bank plantation??

Ray, sorry about the right click thing causing you an issue. It is there because of issues some time ago. I will lookinto getting it sorted for you. Glad you like the site! - Update 11/01/14 Right click issue resolved, sorry it took so long.

I find the site useful and informative and thank you for your efforts. One problem for me - why on earth have you installed a script to disable 'Right Click'?. I use it for navigation and find this annoying. If your intention is to restrict access to your page source then you have failed as it is easy in Firefox to go to the Web Developer options and view it anyway.

Sorry I can't be of more help, wheelchair friendly routes seem in short supply. To be homestI had never considered the need, going forward I will try and see if I can sort some out but after reviewing my current selection of walks the only route I can suggest is the Baslow to Chatsworth route. Please let me know how you get on, even if you use a route supplied by someone else.

We are bringing an elderly relative to the Peak District. Are any of these walks wheelchair friendly?

Yesterday I walked the Cromford walk 4. A brilliant walk that took us to some wonderful parts of Cromford that I'd not been to before. Thanks for a great walk. Just as an update, the post and metal barrier arrangement on Intake Lane has now been replaced by a more civilases gate!

Hi, Firstly thanks for all the walks you have featured so far on this site. I have done a few of them as time has permitted. You have an engaging way of describing them. Unfortunately on your latest walk listed the link does not work. Regards Kelly.

A big thank you to everyone involved in putting the site together.

Nice to have a walk I can do with a pushchair and it's not too long either. We really like Chatsworth and the kids loved that funny round gate. It was the Baslow to Chatsworth one

My boyfreind and I did the Rowsley to Calton Lees walk this morning, it was really nice especailly the little bridge over the waterfall. We sent quite a while trying to take a good photo of it. We really like the site and the way you describe the walks, keep it up please. That car park is a bit of a secret, we never knew it was there and always struggled to park in Rowsley.

Did the Rowsley walk yesterday, had no troubles with the directions, that climb through the first half makes the legs work! I could feel it when I got up this morning.

Nice site, may have a try at one of the walks over the Bank Holiday if the weather holds.
Keep up the good work.
