This walk is just a couple of miles away from Dove Dale, but attracts far fewer visitors and is therefore perfect for those who like a bit of peace and quiet on their walks. Starting from Waterhouses, the route follows the River Manifold and the River Hamps to Hartington. The route can be combined with a trip to Dove Dale, walking up one and returning to your starting point via the other. Buses are infrequent but reliable to the start and finish, connecting you to the larger towns nearby.
