Description

Our walk leaves the quaint village of Birchover. After exploring the unusual rock architecture of Rowtor Rocks, we continue our walk on good field paths and tracks around the village. A gentle ascent then brings us to Stanton Moor. The Moor has plenty to explore including the wonderful Nine Ladies Stone Circle and Cork Stone. The views are extensive over the Derwent Valley. We return to Birchover via a secluded woodland path.

Respect, Protect and Enjoy!

We all want to respect, protect and enjoy the fragile upland environments where we walk, so that they can be enjoyed by generations to come.  Following The Countryside Code really helps…

Respect:
  • Be considerate to those living in, working in and enjoying the countryside
  • Leave gates and property as you find them
  • Do not block access to gateways or driveways when parking
  • Be nice, say hello, share the space
  • Follow local signs and keep to marked paths unless wider access is available
Protect:
  • Take your litter home – leave no trace of your visit
  • Do not light fires and only have BBQs where signs say you can
  • Always keep dogs under control and in sight
  • Dog poo – bag it and bin it – any public waste bin will do
  • Care for nature – do not cause damage or disturbance
Enjoy:
  • Check your route and local conditions
  • Plan your adventure – know what to expect and what you can do
  • Enjoy your visit, have fun, make a memory
