Hope to Offerton Hall and back via Shatton Moor

  • 5 days ago · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

A moor and river walk leading to an historic hall on the south side of the Hope Valley, passing the site of a Roman fort,  a medieval wayside cross and two manor houses, and affording  views of the surrounding areas of the Peak District including Ladybower Reservoir and the Eastern Moors.

Leaving Hope car park we follow a field path across the site of Navio Roman fort and an old Roman road at Brough, soon leaving it to begin our slow ascent of Shatton Moor. Before reaching the highest point we descend Bradwell Edge and climb back up passing Robin Hood’s cross. At the top our route curves round, allowing us to enjoy the view across the valley to Hope and Win Hill. Following a lane going along Shatton Edge we pass the radio mast and continue east towards the elegant Offerton Hall, said to have been built during the reign of Henry IV. Here we turn left, descending to the River Derwent and following its south bank until we reach the village of Shatton. After crossing the A6187, and going through a railway bridge, we walk below Win Hill to pass Aston Hall, an 18th century country house. Then we return to Hope via field paths, under the railway again and across the River Noe. No doubt we will take advantage of the opportunity to refresh ourselves at one of Hope’s many pubs and cafes!

Meet at 10.00 to leave at 10.15 prompt

Public transport:  A train from Sheffield and intervening stations arrives at Hope station at 9.40. A train from Manchester Picadilly  arrives at Hope station at 10.14 – if you get this train you can meet us at the Roman road in Brough (or get the earlier train from Manchester and have breakfast in Hope before meeting us).

Car parking: Pay & Display - £5 I believe

Overall distance 9 - 10 miles. Overall ascent about 450m

If you RSVP YES and then find you can't go on this walk, please change your RSVP to NO as soon as possible. There is often a waiting list for these walks.

    Good question, Joan. It's the B6049. So, from the station, head towards the main road, the A6187. Turn left and follow the A6187 till you reach the junction and then turn right up the B6049. Follow that for about 5 to 10 mins and you'll reach a small road to your left. Wait for us at that junction (you'll see a small brass plaque set into the wall there saying Nigel Eyre, Carpentry & Joinery). You should get there before us with time to spare. If you're not there when we arrive, I'll assume you're not coming. See Martin's comment below on Sep 22 - looks like he'll also be on that train.
    Looking forward to seeing you!
