Discover the ‘Giant’s Castle’ which presides over the lower Derwent Valley, with a knowledgeable local walk leader on another of our free Heritage Open Day walks.
The walk to Hollinside from the Heritage Centre passes some 800 years of history, including the site of Crowley’s Iron works, Butterfly Bridge, the Derwent Walk, Hollinside Manor, Nine Arches viaduct, Kite Hill and Crowley’s Dam.
Many aspects of the heritage of the area has been claimed back and hidden by nature – but if you know where to look there are still signs of the extensive industry that once dominated the landscape.
Tow dates available. Free to attend, places limited and booking essential.
This walk has some steep steps on the way up and down to Hollinside. Not suitable for pushchairs or for those who might struggle walking up inclines and on uneven pathways. Some of the paths can also be muddy at times depending on the weather.
Please wear sturdy walking shoes or boots and suitable waterproof clothing. No dogs allowed.
Regarding social distancing there are a couple of places on the way up to Hollinside where the path is very narrow, plus on the board walk section on the way down.
Max 10 people per guided walk.
If you have any symptoms of coronavirus please cancel your booking and do not attend the event. We’re asking visitors to still wear a mask when entering the Heritage Centre building to order from the cafe or use the toilets – this is to help keep our staff and other visitors safe. Masks do not need to be worn outside or on the walk.
