Beginning your day in the idyllic old spa town of Buxton, home of the famous Buxton spring water, you start your journey outside the iconic Opera House. From here, you will head through the golf course before winding through small farms, cottages and forests before rising up to the moor and dropping down into Goyt Valley. The views here are beautiful as the open moor sweeps away in front of you, punctuated by small streams and old stone walls. Rising back up from the Goyt Valley, you will walk up and over Burbage Edge, with open views in every direction before coming back into Buxton, a town full of pubs, cafes, restaurants and bookshops - perfect for refuelling and whiling away the rest of your day.

Sicherheitshinweise

There are some road crossings, always be aware of traffic and be sure to use a pavement/sidewalk where possible, where it isn’t walk on the right-hand side of the road,

Some of the ground can be uneven, with steep descents and muddy/boggy ground. Ensure you have suitable footwear and step cautiously where needed, the mud is especially tricky in wet weather.

A note about farms and animals: Be very aware of closing gates behind you. Remember, animals on a farm are not pets and can be closer to a wild animal than a domestic pet - particularly for dogs. The main risk today is horses as the path often crosses fields with grazing horses.

When crossing the streams, be wary of slippery and loose stones, if you feel unsure bring walking poles for support, and you can always find a more suitable crossing a little up or downstream.

Food and Drink

There is nowhere to stop for food on the way. It is recommended to bring a packed lunch from Buxton (there are plenty of shops) or some snacks with a view to getting a hot lunch when you return to Buxton later in the day.

 

Points of Interest

Buxton Opera House

Buxton Opera House is in The Square, Buxton, Derbyshire, England. It is a 902-seat opera house that hosts the annual Buxton Festival and, from 1994 to 2013, the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival, among others, as well as pantomime at Christmas, musicals and other entertainments year-round. Hosting live performances until 1927, the theatre then was used mostly as a cinema until 1976. In 1979, it was refurbished and reopened as a venue for live performance.

Burbage Edge

The Burbage Valley is surrounded by the long exposed gritstone of Burbage Edge the two peaks of Carl Wark and Higger Tor. It starts at Longshaw, the hunting lodge built in the 1830s for the Duke of Rutland to entertain parties of visitors as they bagged their grouse from the nearby moorland, and runs around the valley to provide and good round trip back to Longshaw.

 

Goyt Old Railway Line

Opened in 1831, this 33-mile railway connected the Cromford Canal with the Peak Forest Canal in Whaley Bridge. It was a triumph of Victorian ingenuity and determination to join these two important canals over this sometimes bleak and challenging terrain.
