Lathkill & Bradford Dale: 12 Miles Strenuous
Youlgreave - Cales Dale- Monyash - Lathkill Dale - Conksbury - Alport - Bradford Dale - Youlgreave
The walk starts at a picnic area on Moor Lane and descends over fields through Calling Low Farm and into Caves Dale. Rising immediately out of the dale through One Ash Grange Farm and onto Monyash.
The Old Smithy Tea Room is here and is recommended, and next door the Bulls Head. The B5055 is then followed downhill to the start of Lathkill Dale. The walk stays on the north side of the dale until it reaches
Conksbury where it changes to the south side until it reaches Alport.
It is here that the River Bradford joins the Lathkill and we cross the minor road turning right along Bradford Dale. Towards the end of the dale a stone bridge is crossed and the path doubles back along the other
side of the river and up into Youlgreave. Moor Lane is on the left just past the YHA.
