Meeting at the cycle hire car park, ready to walk for 10:00. You can park at the cycle hire Tissington Trail car park or at the leisure centre, DE6 1DR. You can walk from the Leisure Centre through the old railway tunnel to the cycle hire and hear the ghost train. This is a pleasant walk from the railway tunnel at Ashbourne beside the Tissington trail to Thorpe village and Thorpe Cloud. Mostly moderate, but here is a steep ascent up Thorpe Cloud and then we go through Dovedale over the stepping stones then via Bunster Hill to Ilam and back past Coldwall Bridge and through Mapleton to the cycle hire car park. There are toilets at the cycle centre and at the Dovedale car park. Not sure if these will be open due to covid 19, but the Thorpe village toilets have been closed by the local authorities. No pub stops due to covid 19 risks.
