Uses part of the Pennine Bridleway. Quite a climb out of Glossop but this is hill country. Not much in the way of services in the middle but plenty at both ends of this short Peak District walk

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

An enjoyable route with easy detours up to Lantern Pike if you want to add in a cheeky summit. We followed the gpx on OS Maps with no issues. As others have said, there are stiles and gates so some detours would be needed to make it mule-accessible (sounds weird, but a there was a request on Insta for feedback on this!).

    Thanks for your review. I guess to be a mule route it would need to be bridleway because footpaths are for pedestrians. If the mule was pulling a cart it would have to use Restricted Byways and above. There is the option of the Pennine Bridleway for much of the route and I suspect some of the footpaths at the north end should be of higher status, would you like to do some research and submit a Definitive Map Modification Order application.

    Slow Ways shared on Instagram that someone will be walking Oxford to Loch Lomond with a mule. I think most of it is Pennine Bridleway but Slow Ways were asking for people to review other parts of the route to see if they were 'mule-friendly'. Just doing my part to help out, but now very intrigued by Definitive Map Modification Orders!

I found this to be an enjoyable walk. As the previous reviewer indicated it does have steep climbs and descents. It also has many stiles and narrow gates. But is mostly along paths and byways across some beautiful countryside.

Walked Hayfield-Glossop.

Edited: previously, this review contained a flag for 'accuracy', as the GPX track disagreed a bit with the ground truth around Whiteley Nab. However this agrees with the definitive path (see replies) and it's a good route, so I'm removing the flag.

A nice route and very accessible by public transport (Glossop and Hayfield being the edges of the SystemOne bus area). From Hayfield, you ascend along rocky woodland tracks which are often narrow and can be steep in places, then the middle section is gently undulating before a sharp descent into Glossop.

Attractions: pretty all-around views, moorland birds (I saw curlews, lapwings, pheasants and larks), lovely Peaks scenery, cute lambs this time of year!

Obstacles: pasture with sheep/cows/horses, various stiles, gates, steep rocky paths, occasional road/track walking where cars may be encountered

Photos are not uploaded in any order.

    Thanks for your review and sorry you had issues around Whiteley Nab. I'm confident that the plot follows the definitive paths as shown on OS at 1:25,000. At SK 02525 92231 the route moves from Charlesworth FP21 to Charlesworth FP25. The Peak and Northern Footpaths Society inspector for Charlesworth reports that the paths are in good order. Having said that I'm aware that often Derbyshire walked paths do not follow the definitive line and I see here that the recreational route diamonds are a case in point because they are not on the recorded footpath. It's rather annoying that the information we are supplied by the Highway Authority can not be relied upon. This is however access land so you can walk wherever you wish.

    Oh, that makes complete sense, thanks. I was using OpenStreetMap and forgot that it wouldn't necessarily match up to the OS maps.
