We discovered an excellent route today starting from the village of Middleton (near Youlgrave) we walked across the fields to Elton and the on towards the well recognised rocks of Robin Hoods stride also known as Mock Begger hall.
We then followed the limestone way. This path follows an Anglo-Saxon path to market known as the Portway. Our route lead us back to Youlgrave and along the beautiful Bradford Dale in the cool of the afternoon and back to Middleton. The route was 7.5 miles.
From Middleton we headed along the path to the caravan site at Hopping Farm.
We took a quick break on the rocks near Mawstone farm.
