WALK NOTES

Biggin Village - Greenhead - Tissington Trail - Lees Barn - Bradburys Bank - Coldeaton Bridge - Dovedale - Biggin Dale - Reynards Lane - Chapel Farm - Heathcote- Tissington Trail - Biggin Village

This was a lovely early sunday morning walk from Biggin near Hartington via the Tissington Trail and visiting Bradburys Bank, Dovedale, and Biggin Dale. It certainly was sunny and warm. The shadows in the dale at Bradbury Bank made the stony path quite slippery in places. There were very few walkers around until later into my walk (as I returned along the Tissington Trail). There was one point at Heathcote that I was undecided which path I was going to take. I first decided to cross the fields back to Biggin but ended up taking a path back to the Tissington Trail as I was unable to cross the fields due to very lively bullocks blocking my path!! This is a very scenic part of the Peak District.
