Deep Dale The club begins its summer ramble programme with an attractive 10 mile linear walk in the White Peak. We will enjoy a variety of scenery including three villages and three contrasting dales. There should be the usual shorter walk option.. New members are always most welcome. The walk starts from Ashford in the Water, crosses the A6 and follows the footpath by the River Wye and through Great Shacklow Wood. Emeging from the wood we turn south west and walk the entire length of Deep Dale The last section of the morning heads across field paths to the picturesque village of Monyash. This is a great location for our lunch stop with a choice of café or pub for refreshments and also seating on the village green for a picnic lunch. In the afternoon we continue south to link up with Cales Dale and on to one of the highlights of the day when we ramble through the very beautiful Lathkill Dale. We leave the dale to walk up to Over Haddon village and finish this lovely walk across field paths to Bakewell where there should be time for more refreshment before departing for home from the car park by the agricultural centre at 5.30 pm.
