My walk today was to find out more on this area for a proposed sponsored walk later in the year. I started from the village of Hartington and walked across fields to the start of Beresford Dale. It was a lovely descent into the dale and there was an unusual tower rock after crossing a footbridge shortly after entering the dale. After walking through Beresford Dale I came out into the open to cross fields to Wolfscote Dale. There were few walkers around today which I thought was unusual for such a nice day. Wolfscote Dale was pretty especially in the sun. There are plenty of limestone outcrops along this stretch of the River Dove. I turned off the main path along the River Dove to ascend Biggin Dale (which is also a National Nature Reserve). There was a small cave about half way up through Biggin Dale. Eventually I turned out of Biggin Dale and walked along Reynards Lane back to the village of Hartington. It was a lovely and very pleasant walk.
