Hartington - Sheen - Longnor - Pilsbury Castle Hills - Hartington Walk

WalkExplorer

This walk crosses and follows both the Dove and Manifold Valleys to join the two 'once main' market towns in this area. Much of the walk follows field-paths and tracks, though some road-walking is required approaching the towns at either end of the walk.
Longnor was the last town used as Cardale in the TV medical drama series 'Peak Practice', which was produced in the late 90s-01, though this route by-passes the market square which was used. Hartington too featured in some episodes.

The return route takes you to the remains of the Iron Age fort at Pilsbury Castle Hills, which protected the then important route between Longnor, Crowdecote and Hartington. Nothing remains of the mainly wooden fort but natural defences and mounds where motte and bailey would have been. There are several other former fortified remains along the valley route to Hartington.

The pub used on this walk is the Cheshire Cheese Inn, just beyond the market area and close to the chip shop. Walkers are welcomed and have a display sign 'muddy boots and all' on the gable wall. Serving Robinson's beers, there is a choice of hand-pulled beers. The food menu has a good choice and is reasonable value.
