This was was taken from the Derby City Council website where there are quite a few circular walks in Derby.
It is 6 miles – the only trouble with this walk at the moment is at the beginning of the walk there are new houses being built which block off the route – but we managed to find our way round it! The walk took us 2 hours and 49 minutes – which included a stop off for a cheeky pint ?.
There is free parking at the start of the walk at the Chellaston Community Centre.
Lovely walk down the towpath – Trent & Mersey Canal
There is a bit of a walk along the road now but soon back on to a field and come out to the River Trent
This is a lovely walk – and it’s such a sunny day – it’s really windy but still nice and warm – can’t believe it’s October and we don’t need a coat!
So it’s a walk along the river with some beautiful views
And here’s a great view – pub in the distance ??
The Causeway – although very patched up – dates mainly from the 13th and 14th centuries.
Time’s was getting on so we just had the one pint at the Crewe & Harper and made a move as we still had a couple of miles to go.
Lovely walk back along the canal – one of our favourite things.
This has been a lovely walk – and a beautiful day – really enjoyed it.
Last little stretch of the walk back
My little legs are aching so off home now and maybe have a nice glass of red – or two.
And our gorgeous little Tilly loved this walk too ❤️
