Monsal head to Whitwell was the 1st challenge walk devised by the LSW.
First walked in 1996 (on the day England beat Scotland in Euro 96) it was taken on by 22 walkers on a seriously hot day. This is a route that has it all. Classic Derbyshire dales….stunning views from Curbar/Froggatt edges……meandering fields full of cows, horses etc….even history thrown in in the shape of EYAM (plague village) culminating in the “mental test” that is Packman Lane right near the end….just when you thought it got easy….PACKMAN LANE (the evil gits!).
So, download the route and give it a go………..
Route due to be walked in 2019———–our 25th Anniversary Walk!!!!!!!
