Ellastone - Rocester - Marston Montgomery - Roston - Ellastone Walk

WalkExplorer

Whilst most of this route is fairly easy walking, some paths can take a little finding or may well be overgrown. As a general rule of thumb, assume all waymark arrows are pointing in the wrong direction and trust in your map reading. All stiles were present when walked, though some were overgrown or diverted.

Part of this walk follows the newer section of the Limestone Way which now runs to Uttoxeter rather than finishing at Matlock Station as before; this section is not as well-walked or maintained as the more northern sections.

The route passes through Rocester, which is shown on the map as a Roman Fort and settlement, also with the remains of an abbey. There seems little physical evidence of this in the town now on passing through; perhaps it required more investigation. The town is now dominated by the world headquarters of the JCB diggers company.

The pub used on this  the Crown Inn in Marston Montgomery; this is a brasserie and hotel. They are walker-friendly, but extend them the usual courtesy of covering or removing muddy boots. They offer a good-value menu with an interesting choice of breads for their baguettes. There is a choice of hand-pulled beers on offer but nothing special, with Bass and Marston's Pedigree on offer when walked.
