Wingfield Manor - Peak District Walk

Wednesday 16th June 2010

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 mins

Pentrich Revolution Sign

The walk starts in the village of Pentrich where you can follow a trail that tells the story of the last revolution in England, which started in the village.

My route doesn't follow the trail but this broad track through fields.

Crich Stand

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
