Event Overview

Join Generation Next for a walk in the Peak District. This easy Peak District walk is round 5 miles in length, taking in many interesting sites through Bamford Moor, Bamford and Thornhill, before returning to the start point by Ladybower Reservoir.

This mostly easy walk does have a slightly tricky uphill climb toward Bamford Moor, but everything else is pretty straightforward. On this Peak District walk, you’ll enjoy some fantastic and varied landscapes and scenery, including Castleton Caverns, Ladybower Reservoir, and the River Derwent.

We will start and end this Peak District walk at Heatherdene Car Park, heading south towards Bamford Edge. There’s a steep downhill path towards Bamford, and you’ll then begin to head towards the river.

Cross the river with care, as there are steppingstones and footbridges to negotiate; cross through fields and the track you’re following which will eventually take you into woodland, as we follow signs for Yorkshire Bridge, one of the final points on our route.


It probably won’t surprise you to find out that there are no facilities on Bamford Edge. Not even a single bench to sit on! Instead, here are the nearest facilities…

The nearest toilets are at Heatherdene Car Park and they’re free to use. Additionally, free drinking water taps are located in the car park too.

The Yorkshire Bridge Inn and the Anglers Rest are the nearest pubs, both serve food and drinks throughout the day with outdoor and indoor seating. A Nisa Local convenience shop is located at the Texaco petrol station near Bamford Station.
