Chesterfield Round Walk

The Ramblers

The Chesterfield Round Walk (established in June 2005) is a 34 mile circular walk exploring the varied countryside just beyond the suburban fringes of Chesterfield.
The town can often be visible from vantage points, particularly on the higher ground to the west and east.
There are six convenient sections between points served by public transport and with parking opportunities.

It can therefore be explored leisurely either as a series of linear walks using buses, out and back walks from a car, or as part of circular walks of your own devising,
using OS Explorer Map 269 (Chesterfield & Alfreton)
It can even be walked in a day, as is the case in the Chesterfield Area Walking Festival each May – or over a weekend.

Cheerful faces for people walking 34 miles. An ambitious ‘selfie’ perhaps ?

Perfect walking weather for the 10th anniversary of the Chesterfield Round Walk.
A regular fixture in the Chesterfield Area Walking Festival, the route was developed by our then footpath secretary, Dennis Ransby and volunteers.
Dennis was there at today’s Red Lion lunch stop, together with the Mayor & Mayoress of Chesterfield, Alexis and Vickey-Anne Diouf, and the Chair of NE Derbyshire District Council, Tracy Reader with Andrew.
We’d taken the opportunity to install a bench at the Red Lion in commemoration of Norman Mason, one of our group’s founder members, who sadly passed away last year.
His brother, Harold, and niece Hilary were there to also greet the walkers.
Thanks to our distinguished guests, to the Red Lion / Peak Edge Hotel who provided a refreshment table, the White Hart, and to all who have supported and maintained the Round Walk over the years.
