Walk 70 – Padley Gorge & Surprise View – The Other side

Walk 70 took me back to Padley Gorge but this time I did the opposite side of the walk up into the hills and open landscape which is covered in Heather.

This place is a must visit when the Heather is out in full bloom. I was probably a week or maybe 2 weeks to early for its full bloom but it still looked amazing.

Walk 67 – Old American Adventure Site

Walk 67 took me around the old Theme Park which was Called The American Adventure.

It had Themed Rides and even Live acts back in the day.

The walk also took me through Nutbrook and on to part of the Shipley Park Route to the cafe there 🙂

Walk 61 – Sutton Scarsdale Hall & Bolsover Castle

Walk 61 started at Sutton Scarsdale Hall which is owned by The English Heritage and under going renovation to make out save. It is currently fenced off as you can hear parts of it falling away whilst walking around it. The Hall itself is set in a great setting.

The walk then went onto Bolsover Castle which is rather large. You could easily spend a whole day there and still be finding other rooms or parts of it you haven’t seen. A great day out just in itself. This again is Owned by the English Heritage so if visiting quite a few of their places it is well worth signing up online, it will save you a fortune.
