Derwent Valley Heritage Way

Long Distance Footpath


For those who are looking for a more strenuous challenge, the Derwent Valley Heritage Way offers a 55 mile route through the county of Derbyshire. 


Stretching from Ladybower Reservoir in the north to Shardlow in the south, the walk through the valley offers varied scenery and a way-marked route.  Passing through the Peak District National Park via Chatsworth Park and the breath taking scenery around the Derbyshire dales and Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, the riverside path continues to Journey's End where the Derwent flows into the River Trent.

The Derwent Valley Heritage Way can be enjoyed as a long distance walk or as a series of shorter walks.  Stay in local accommodation and enjoy relaxing rambles through the valley.  Take a walking break and explore the valley from end to end.


Brigantes Walks also offer a full Derwent Valley Heritage Way package including accommodation booking service, luggage transfer and tailored packages.  They even offer a caravan option, complete with your own driver to ensure that your overnight home is waiting for you on your onward journey.
