walk notes

This 7 mile walk will take us on a journey back in time. 

Chopwell Wood has a long industrial past in mining and the production of timber. 

There are the remains of an ancient oak forest clinging to the steep crags above the River Derwent.  A stroll along the footpath that follows the old colliery railway will remind you of the industrial heritage of this now tranquil woodland.
