This walk travels through some of the lesser-known Dales of the White Peak District. Deepdale, Horseshoe Dale & Bullhay Dale are places of natural beauty with lots of interesting features from Derbyshire's Industrial heritage, evidence of occupation by early man and myths & legends. Deepdale, a tributary of the main Wye (river) valley, has recently been awarded SSSI status (Site of Special Scientific Interest) testifying to the importance of the Dale."
