We only live about 15 minutes drive so we regularly visit, it's a lovely walk along the canal especially with the many ducks and the ducklings, lovely cafe for a coffee and cake, and just over the road the mill. Peace and quiet. Lovely

Went for a walk along the Cromford on a sunny summers day midweek. I chose the walk for several reasons but mainly because my good lady does not like walking up hills. Obviously the route is totally flat with the towpath well consolidated and maintained giving good walking conditions. We parked in Cromford meadows and walked to Whatstandwell stopped at... More

It was a nice warm evening and the Cromford Canal only being a few minutes drive away we packed the dog into the car and went for a very pleasant walk along the canal. Again, plenty of history here, the canal has been restored to its original route and the towpaths have been revamped. Plenty of parking facilities (which there... More

We walked along the canal for an hour or more and enjoyed the scenery and the wild life. It is busy at the start and becomes changes to solitude after a mile or so. Wonderful

The walk along the canal is always fun. Despite visiting there on a number of occasions, have never visited the other attactions - so can't comment on those.

We went mid-week to walk our dogs. WE'd been intending to try this walk for sometime and were not disappointed. The canal is recently restored along part of its original route The towpath has been relaid and is an easy walk. We saw people travelling the route in wheel chairs. There are plentiful parking facilities and public toilets. There is... More
