ALLESTREE WALK

An enjoyable walk on the northern outskirts of Derby, which soon after the start joins the Derwent Valley and heads for Duffield, before climbing steadily up Bunkerís Hill to Quarndon. The latter section of the walk passes through Big Wood, then along the perimeter of Allestree Golf Course and through the old part of the village. 

 

The parish church of St Alkmund stands in the water-meadows of the River Derwent, a short distance from Duffield close to the busy, main Sheffield, Derby to London Railway Line. The footbridge over the line provides an excellent viewing point for enthusiast and interested spectator.
