Peak District Walk – Monsal Dale & Ashford-in-the-Water

This videos sees us head to Monsal Dale for a nice but short circular walk of around 6 1/2 miles. We parked near the Monsal Head Inn and made our way down to the River Wye in Monsal Dale via the Headstone Viaduct. The route then took us down towards Deep Dale and eventually to ancient Packhorse Bridge at Ashford-in-the-Water. After a short stop to feed the ducks we then made our way up the hill and back around to Monsal Head. It was a short but sweet wander but ideal for a quick outing, we finished the walk with lunch at Hobb’s Cafe before heading home.

  1. Thanks for visiting and commenting Chris. I’d been blogging about my Peak District walking for a while on my personal site (, so thought I’d gather all the Peak District posts together in one place. I feel so lucky to live so close and can’t get enough of the peaks at the minute 🙂 all the best
