Join us on the 26th March for a heritage walking tour of the Ashover/Overton area, led by Tony Wood from the Peak District Mines Historical Society (PDMHS).


Discover some of the industrial history of the village of Ashover and surrounding area on this guided walk.


Start at Ashover Village Hall car park

Crispin Inn – Job Wall

Ashover Church – Parkin and Babbington Graves

Amber Valley Light Railway

Overton Hall and Mine (Joseph Banks etc)

Back through the fields to Ashover.


The walk will commence at 11am on the 26th March at Ashover Village Hall and is likely to be at least 2.5hrs long, so brining a packed lunch and wearing suitable clothing etc. is recommended.


It will be free to join, but donations are very much encouraged and you must book on via Eventbrite. Proceeds will be split between the two charities - DHBT and the PDMHS.
