A local walk that was done as research for the local magazine I write for. One or two interesting diversions that resulted in me changing my planned route, as I didn't think others would appreciate walking along paths that were overgrown with nettles that were at head height for me, so well above waist height for most other adults.
Start: Roadside parking in Pentrich (SK 3900 5258)
Route: Pentrich - Wingfield Manor - Coalburn Hill - Wingfield Park - Pentrich
Distance: 5 miles Ascent: 181 metres Time Taken: 3 hours 10 minutes
Terrain: Good paths and grassy fields.
Weather: Warm with blue skies.
Pub visited: None Ale Drunk: None
The walk starts in the village of Pentrich
where you can follow a trail
that tells the story
My route doesn't follow the trail but this broad track through fields.
The view towards Crich and Crich Stand.
Looking back towards the ridge, which I walked along at the start of the walk.
On a hot day this shady track was a welcome relief from heat of the sun
Wingfield Manor where Mary Queen of Scots
was held before
