Hartington’s a lovely village nestled in the south western corner of the White Peak. It’s got picture postcard Georgian properties, a duck pond and most importantly for the likes of you and me a good selection of gnarmac on hand.

Manifold Velley

This route explores to the south and east of the village. First heading off towards the Manifold Valley and along an old railway. There’s then the brutal ascent of Larkstone Lane and over towards the Tissington Trail.

Larkstone Lane

From there we take the route less travelled towards Carsington Water. From there it’s along the national cycle network and High Peak Trail for a while before heading off on a roller coaster of a ride towards Elton. This diversion handily leads us to a few classic Peak District white road sections before heading back to the start.

White Peak. White road.
