Time: 11am

Meeting place: High Peak Junction car park, Lea Road, Lea Bridge


  • Walk along Cromford Canal and through Lea Wood up to Lea Hurst
  • Meet Peter Kay, owner of Lea Hurst
  • Tour of gardens, access to key rooms in house and see Nightingale related features
  • Proceed along route of the Heritage route, passing various points of interest
  • Lunch stop at Jug & Glass pub (members may join us here if not wanting/able to participate in the walk)
  • Continue along Heritage route
  • Return to car park

The walk will be approx. 4 miles with some inclines, but we will take it at a steady pace, not a route march!
