647 Castleton to Hope

The first time we did this walk it was Christmas and as we came back into Castleton the surrounding hills had vanished into the dark while everywhere was tinsel and a blaze of coloured lights. It can be delightful then, but whatever the season it's a walk that is surprisingly quiet, getting you away in a moment from the crowds as you cross the fields to the neighbouring village of Hope. Then, after an easy return beside Peakshole Water, there's an afternoon tea to enjoy and a visit to the million pound Castleton Centre.
