Local residents and visitors to the dale are welcome on our walks

Walk Details:  We climb up towards Hill End with excellent views along the Bollihope Valley and its shapely quarry spoil heaps, returning along an attractive section of the Bollihope Burn.  The walk follows good tracks and paths except for one short steep slope down which can be difficult after rain and 800 yards of rough pasture at the end of the walk.

Date:  Tuesday 6th November
