Length: 3.8 mi • Est. 1 h 59 m
Note: As of June 2020, some parts of this trail is closed off (at Hardwick Hall), however there is a detour. A walk around Hardwick Hall estate in Derbyshire. Hardwick Hall was built between 1590 and 1597 and was the home of Bess of Hardwick, Countess of Shrewsbury and ancestress of the Dukes of Devonshire. The extensive grounds also contain Hardwick Old Hall, a slightly earlier house which was used as guest and service accommodation after the new hall was built. The Old Hall is now a ruin. Hardwick estate, which surrounds the magnificent hall, covers around 2,500 acres of parkland, woodland, wetland and farmland. You will see several sculptures in the lower park. The National Trust became the owner in 1959, and a charge applies if you wish to visit the house and gardens. On this walk you will encounter several gates, a fairly steep up hill section and a steep down hill section. The made paths are of good quality (but could have puddles after wet weather) whilst the grass paths are well defined and easy to follow. The woodland paths can get fairly muddy after rain and in winter. Public toilets are available in the car park which also has a coffee/tea machine, further toilets are available in the visitor centre which also has a cafe and gift shop. The walk takes approximately 2 hours to complete.Show more

The Five Pits Trail is our first trail and consists of a network of surfaced walkways for recreational use by walkers, cyclists and horse riders alike. You can listen to tales of history, heritage and wildlife of the area with downloadable audio trails for the Five Pits Trail, Holmewood Woodlands and Grassmoor Village.
