The walk to Hartington through Wolfscote Dale continues up the valley of the Dove. You will meet fewer walkers than in Dovedale but the valley is just as lovely.

Hartington has a splendid wide main street and central square with a range of cafes and pubs to choose from.

St Giles church presides proudly over the village from its eminence off Hyde Lane and has many points of interest.

Hartington Hall vies with that at Ilam to be the most splendiferous youth hostel in the country. You may wish to spend your first night at Hartington.
