Saturday 21 June 2014

Many congratulations from Breast Cancer Care and woman&home to all our wonderful Chatsworth Pink Ribbonwalkers! It was a wonderful day and we hope that you all enjoyed yourselves. We will be emailing you with an online questionnaire and look forward to your feedback. In the meantime please email pinkribbonwalk@breastcancercare.org.uk if you want to let us know about your experiences on the day.

Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who gave up so much of their time to help us at the event. We really couldn’t make the Pink Ribbonwalk such a success without your support. If you would be interested in volunteering at next year’s Pink Ribbonwalk please email rwassistant@breastcancercare.org.uk. Thank you also to all the very generous companies who donated their products to us on the day; they were hugely appreciated by all involved.

Don’t forget that your £100 sponsorship needs to be with us by Friday 25 July.

Well done, we hope you are immensely proud of your fantastic achievement and have your medal somewhere for all to see!


20 mile route

Average walking time: 6 to 9.5 hours including rest stops

We climb away from our event site at Chatsworth along a footpath to the 16th century Hunting Tower and into Stand Wood. We pass lakes and walk along wooded tracks and cross the River Derwent to join the Derwent Valley Heritage Way. We continue through the Haddon Estate and into the market town of Bakewell before joining the Monsal Trail, which takes us through the Wye Valley. We continue down to the village of Edensor and along the River Derwent before returning to the Chatsworth Estate.

10 mile route

Average walking time: 3 to 5 hours including rest stops

The 10 mile route has the same beginning and end as the 20 mile route.

In the Hamlet of Calton Lees the two routes split, with the 20 mile walkers turn south to Rowsley, while the 10 mile walkers proceed west up the valley through farmland and woods, merging with the 20 mile route on the descent towards the model village of Edensor. 

Routes subject to change
