Lathkill Dale
By Neil Haslewood
19th September 2009

A delightful walk from the village of Monyash. This is the start of the annual White Peak Walk in July. Janet and I followed the Limestone Way for much of the way passing through One Ash Grange Farm, Cales Dale (very steep), Calling Low, and Bradford Dale. From Youlgrave we continued through Bradford Dale to Alport and then we picked up the path to Conksbury Bridge and followed the path through the entire length of Lathkill Dale back to Monyash. The last short section near Monyash went via Bagshaw Dale. It was a great walk on a lovely sunny day.
