Monsal Head – Sun 17th July

Description:

Monsal Head, directly above Monsal Dale, is one of the most famous and photographed viewpoints in Derbyshire. The combination of the winding River Wye at the bottom of the steep dale, the famous Headstone viaduct, Fin Cop hill and Hob’s House cave are all elements that make a walk through Monsal Dale or the view from Monsal Head outstanding. At the Monsal Head view point there are benches where you can sit and enjoy the view or watch the sunset and also a nearby pub at the Monsal Head Hotel.

We will also be stopping at The Yonderman Cafe, which is only a few miles away from Monsal Head, for breakfast/lunch before returning to Burton.

Note we will be following a slightly different route for the return journey.
