Peak Forest & Eldon Hole

Taken from the book Peak District Top 10 Moors and Tors available at

The first walk after lockdowns. A 4.5 mile route with some hills. Hills were harder than I remembered, maybe because it’s after 12 months of very little walking (lockdown.)

The weather was fine – cold at the beginning, but clear skies and dry, warming up as we warmed up.

The start of the walk is from street parking – widely available on Church Lane

And some photos

Clearly from the GPS route below, we need to work on our instruction reading skills after the extended break. We spent 1 mile walking round the same hill looking for the correct exit.
