This is a pleasant walk from the former Alsop Station on the Tissington Trail down to the River Dove at Lode Mill. Then a stroll along the river bank, followed by an ascent of one of Derbyshire's less well known dales to re-join the Tissington Trail and return to Alsop Station. On this walk you will encounter several squeezer stiles and gates and one steady uneven climb, some sections can be overgrown with nettles. Picnic tables are sited near the car park.

First part of the walk was along roads and we were unlucky as we had a lot of passing traffic. After this we loved the walk through the valley alongside the river. The postcode is a bit off, so far better to not rely on this to find the start point! May 2019
