The Centre welcomes walking groups. The walk pictured goes from our front door at Ashbourne Gateway – Mapleton – River Dove – Thorpe – Tissington Trail – Ashbourne Gateway in the space of 2 hours.
It’s looking delightfully autumnal in the Derbyshire Dales at the moment, but you will need walking boots as there is a muddy section beside the River Dove. This area is perfect for walking groups as it is central location in the UK and easily accessible for walking groups that are spread far and wide. The pheasants are easier to spot now that there is less leaf cover. At Thorpe the adventurous can extend this 6 mile circular walk across to the Dovedale stepping stones and around the base of Thorpe Cloud, or to the top!
