The River Derwent in Matlock Bath
The Derwent Valley Heritage Trail
This fascinating walk covers a total of 55 miles - from Ladybower in the north to Shardlow in the south - along the River Derwent... though, of course, you can do it as a series of shorter walks.
This is an opportunity to explore the length of the River Derwent in either one large chunk or in several, perhaps more manageable blocks.
There is plenty to see along the way, including the Derbyshire Dales and the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.
It all ends at the historic inland port of Shardlow and Derwent Mouth, where the Derwent flows into the River Trent.
We're not going to attempt to give you a step-by-step guide to the whole walk as the route is huge, but we have included a few guidelines and milestones.
