Walking in the local area

The Manifold Inn is ideally place for those who enjoy walking with a wide choice of walks in the Staffordshire Moorlands or the Derbyshire Dales. You could park the car up and just take to your feet on a number of routes and on your return enjoy a well-deserved drink and a bite to eat.

The Peak District National Park is easily accessible via a number Motorway and Major Road links. The area was the first British National Park to be designated in 1951 offering as it does a beautiful unspoilt oasis surrounded be a large number of cities – Manchester, Sheffield, Derby, Stoke-on-Trent, Birmingham and the West Midlands – most of which are less than an hours drive.

The contrasting landscape of dales, mountains and moorlands offer the keen walker an escape be it only for a few hours. You could enjoy the valleys of the River Manifold and the River Dove or find a variety of walks to suit all abilities and ages around Hartington or across the White Peak district of the Peak District National Park.

We have a number of Maps and Local Walks Guides at the Manifold Inn we would be happy to let you browse over a small Ale at the bar.

A ramble in the Roaches

A really great walk is one so beautiful and varied that you want to do it again and again. It’s one you want to experience in different seasons, and enjoy at different times of day. The 7.5 mile (12km) walk from the Roaches to Lud’s Church has to be an all-time favourite.
