Each walk is led by a guide with over 30 years experience of leading guided walks in the area. Most walks are accessible by public transport, and are suitable for walkers of all ages and abilities. Scheduled walks take place most days, with private bookings also available. Most half-day walks and some full-day walks are available year-round as private bookings (subject to weather conditions). Short-break guided walking holidays are available year-round (subject to weather). Four and five-day durations are available, with fixed or customised itineraries. All five-day fixed itineraries include a free day for you to explore the area on your own. Book your own accommodation and travel to suit, and we provide the walks. Some walks are wheelchair-accessible, and many are also dog-friendly.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic experience. My wife and I recently moved to the area. Adrian provided an excellent walk around Belper. His knowledge of the town and it's vast history was very inspiring.

As we couldn't go away due to Covid this has given us the opportunity to visit places near where we live.
Heathersage and Stanage Walk is about 41 miles from Balderton and 1hr 30 mins drive pending on traffic.
If you use the parking in town its £6 for all day cut through the church and public toilets are next to vets on opposite side they were clean and proper loo roll lol.
The walk starts back up the hill on the left and I have to say the information and map provided on the website was very good.
Sun was shining you go through a lot of farms so dogs to be kept on lead as livestock were lambing.
We also walked past Bronte Cottage.
Some more public toilets at foot of mountain walk which are clean
We climbed up to the top for the amazing views there were some rock climbing going on
We took a picnic which was lovely to have looking across the valley.
It was very windy so be careful if near edge
As it was lovely weather the views were stunning
It did start to change and cloud over and rain from 1.30 but they didn't stop us

The only thing that spoiled it was dog walkers who had cleaned up the poo but then threw it on rocks or left the poo bags where they picked it up. You can get a dog buddy which clips to your belt - pick poo up as normal in poo bag and pop into poo buddy which is like a small lightweight container then when you come across the bin empty in there

Arranged Adrian to give a party of 10 a tour of Cromford. He kept us all interested with a fascinating talk and really interesting facts. We could have walked round the town and come away thinking it was a nice town but Adrian really brought it to life.

Had a walk of Belper from Turnpike to Workhouse and it was very interesting. Guide was very knowledgeable and Belper still has a lot of history on show.

We picked up the Heritage Walk 1 leaflet from the shop at Strutts North Mill Visitor Centre. Took us about an hour but could be quicker if you don't stop and talk to locals on your way round! No great distance to cover but very interesting and points out many things that you would just walk past without realising their history/significance. Most enjoyable.

We booked a walk with Adrian for two hours this week on the history of the industrial revolution around Cromford, taking 2 teenage boys. It may not sound thrilling, but Adrian really brought the area alive with all sorts of stories and titbits. Even the boys were fascinated... and I can highly recommend Adrians depth of knowledge. He was able to answer all of the questions we asked. After the walk, the boys wanted to compare which facts we found most interesting. There were only us 4 and it really does make a difference when you aren't tailing around in a big group and can get immediate answers. Give it a try!

If your interested in the history of the industrial revolution (and who shouldn't be) coupled with plenty to see and do, and great English countryside scenic beauty, you could not beat Derbyshire (including the heritage walks) as the ideal place for at least a two or three day visit. The Valley includes a number of old cotton spinning mills where the "factory system" had its start. Sadly, none of the mills are in commercial operation today; but some are now museums of the industrial revolution period; some have been renovated and have operating machinery of the period which provide a visitor with a good idea of what work life was like at the time. Others have been converted to art galleries, antique shops, and /or shopping malls within the old structures. You can also visit the housing that the owners built for their workers; not bad for the time; built to make sure that workers were able to arrive at work on time. All these structures are conveniently close to each other, You, and/or your children, will have a wonderful time without realizing, until you get home and write a review as I did, how much you "painlessly" learned about the industrial revolution period that still has great impact on our lives until this very day.
