My son regularly used to attend cycle training camps at Darley Moor circuit, leaving me with hours to kill in the Peak District! This is a walk I did a few times, through the crowds and across the stepping stones in Dovedale to Milldale with a diversion to the lovely and quiet Baley Hill on the way back.

Heh, and Milldale is where my father proposed to my mother in ... errr ... 1957 or thereabouts. She's no longer with us but he still lives in a house called 'Milldale' after that event.
