Hope Station - Abney Clough - Hathersage Saturday 28th January 2012




Our linear walk starts at Hope Station and climbs to Abney Moor, where we admire the views over the Hope Valley to Win Hill, Lose Hill, Mam Tor and Kinder Scout.


From the top of Abney Moor, we drop over the back to the hill village of Abney and on into the beautiful wooded valley of Abney Clough. After passing through a rich variety of woodland, we leave the wood to walk briefly along the valley top, before dropping to Leadmill then making our way to Hathersage Station to return on the 14.42 train back to Sheffield


This is a 6.7 mile walk 3.5hrs



Start time: 10.50

Meeting point: Hope Station

Terrain:One climb at the beginning, the walk is over good paths, tracks and minor roads. Most of the route is well-drained, with mud only being present after rain. However, there are places where the mud will remain year round and so I would strongly recommend walking-boots.


Parking: Dore Station or Sheffield City Centre to catch the train

Public transport:

Train from Sheffield or Dore

10.14 Sheffield platform 2c

10.21 Dore

If travelling by train please purchase return tickets on outward journey as it works out much cheaper

Sheffield return £6.10

Dore return £5.40

By Bus: there are good bus services to Hope Station from Sheffield, Castleton, Baslow and Chesterfield. The bus stop is on the A6187 at the end of the station road.
