76. Grindleford and Eyam peak district walk

76. Grindleford and Eyam 18th September 2014.

Parking on the B6521 south side of Grindleford we headed south taking New Road on the right then a tree lined track on the right. The track joins Riley Lane passing the Riley graves on our right then through Riley Wood which joins New Road taking a road on the right then right again up Riley Back Road to a path avoiding the centre of Eyam. The path joins Edge Road and we stopped to see Monpesson Well on the right before proceeding up Edge Road and right onto Sir William Hill Road. A long straight road then winding into Grindleford and The William Hill inn for a drink. We decided it was time to eat and chose a bench opposite the pub but a not very timely cesspit draining van right next to us forced us the finish our sandwiches down by the bridge in a nice paved area surrounded by roses. So we actually did come out of it smelling of roses! That’s a first! A short walk up the road through Grindleford and back to the car.
