Dovedale and the Manifold Valley

Hartington, The Peak District, England

Hilly

Starting at Hartington in the Derbyshire Peak District, we ride through the stunning Long Dale valley where we turn and cross the River Dove at Crowdecote and enter Staffordshire. After leaving Longnor we then cross the River Manifold where we head into the Manifold Valley via the lovely village of Butterton. On our climb out of this limestone valley keep a sharp eye out on the right hand side where you will see a brief glimpse of the amazing Thor’s Cave. We head through Wetton to eventually finish at Ilam. Scenery in this area would give Yorkshire a run for its money any day!
