Enjoy the scenery with us on a walk around Digley, Bilberry and beyond.
Digley offers a varied walk alongside woods, through fields and the edge of the moor, with plenty of lovely scenery along the way.
Glimpses of Digley Reservoir can be seen around this circuit, along with views of its smaller neighbour, Bilberry Reservoir.
This 5.5 mile long walk is suited for those feeling adventurous and we’d recommend putting on a sturdy pair of boots before setting off.
Route length 5.5 miles
Walking time 3 hours
Terrain & gradient This route takes you over a variety of terrain, including unsurfaced paths, rough tracks, fields and a short section of roadside walking (mostly on the pavement). There are steps, stiles and gates along the way. Sections of the route can be muddy, uneven and slippery, with some fairly steep gradients, so good sturdy footwear is recommended.
Meeting point Digley Quarry Car Park (nearest postcode HD9 2QD). Alternative free parking is available at Digley South Car Park (nearest postcode HD9 2RX); to the southern end of the embankment.
After all that work, we’ll need a good lunch, so we’ve booked a table at a lovely female-owned restaurant, Devour at the Dyehouse.
Your registration fee covers a branded t-shirt, that you can bring along to our next hike!
