Alstonefield - Low Plantation - Narrowdale Hill - Narrowdale - Wolfscote Dale - Gipsy Bank - Alstonefield

This was a short stroll in a lovely part of Derbyshire. The walk starts in Alstonefield where there is plenty of places to park. The village also has a great pub which has lots of character. My walk included a trek up to the summit of Narrowdale Hill where fantastic views to the north can be seen. One can actually see Parkhouse Hill and Chrome Hill (on a clear day) which are at the northern end of the River Dove. The climb out of the dale at Gipsy Bank is quite steep. In fact the walk that I followed out of the guide book actually was in reverse so normally one would be descending into the dale at this point. Green Well is well worth the visit with its facinating history. Also dont miss a visit to The George.
