The Programme for our Partnership Walks on the Eastern Moors is now available.  Walk Moor and Walk Moor Plus walks will run between March and November.

We are giving the What3Words location for each of the car parks as they are not all obvious.  Find the website at https://what3words.com/ or download the app.

Booking is advised - please contact helen.milton@derbyshiredales.gov.uk 01629 761194


We are delighted to have a partnership between Derbyshire Dales District Council, NE Derbyshire District Council and the Eastern Moors Partnership to provide a wonderful monthly walk along the Gritstone Edges and up on the Eastern Moors.  Walks are on uneven ground and will include some uphills.

Please wear appropriate clothing and be prepared for inclement weather.  Wear good boots/shoes to give your feet support and long trousers to protect against ticks.  Bring some water and poles if you have them.  There are opportunities for a drink afterwards at several of the meeting points so do bring some money if you would like to.
