Peak District Walk – Monsal Dale & Ashford-in-the-Water

This videos sees us head to Monsal Dale for a nice but short circular walk of around 6 1/2 miles. We parked near the Monsal Head Inn and made our way down to the River Wye in Monsal Dale via the Headstone Viaduct. The route then took us down towards Deep Dale and eventually to ancient Packhorse Bridge at Ashford-in-the-Water. After a short stop to feed the ducks we then made our way up the hill and back around to Monsal Head. It was a short but sweet wander but ideal for a quick outing, we finished the walk with lunch at Hobb’s Cafe before heading home.

  1. Been following you for a few months now and the videos and links are very informative. I had a rocky start to last year with bad health but started walking the peaks on my recovery.
    Iv walked Curbar edge and white edge , roaches and kinder scout.
    I’m going to do this one in the next week or so, never been to Ashford on the water so I’m looking forward to it.


    1. Hi Ian, thanks for following and watching the videos. I really enjoy this route, I hope you have a great time when you head out in the Peaks again. All the best, Dean
