The entrance to Chesterfield Station with statue of George Stephenson out front


This is a pretty, quiet and mainly off-road circular walk.  It is one of Transition Chesterfield’s car-free walks.  

From the Railway Station, you will be climbing through Tapton golf course using off-road woodland paths.  Fine views of Chesterfield and beyond can be seen on a clear day.  

After walking through Chesterfield Royal hospital grounds, you will go via Hady through fields and woodland.  

Finally, you will return to the station using a short section along the main road and back alongside the river Rother.
