Section 10 - Hope to Hathersage

Section 10 of The Trans-Pennine 100 makes its way out of Hope and finds the footpath from Pindale Rd.

Passing the hidden Roman Fort, this undulating section eventually reaches the River Derwent at Shatton.

The route follows the River passing the Stepping Stones to reach the B6001 bridge.

A pleasant path takes us to Hathersage and a hearty breakfast.

  • Roman fort the remains of the Roman fort of Navio are close to Brough and Batham Gate, a Roman road connected Navio with the spa town of Buxton (Latin Aquae Arnemetiae) and, via a now lost route Templebrough on the River Don. Gate means "road" in northern English dialects; the name therefore means "road to the bath town".

  • The River Derwent is a river in Derbyshire, England. It is 66 miles (106 km) long and is a tributary of the River Trent, which it joins south of Derby throughout its course, the river mostly flows through the Peak District and its foothills.

  • Hathersage The origin of its name is disputed, although it is generally accepted that the second half derives from the Old English word ecg meaning "edge". In 1086 it was recorded in the Domesday Book as Hereseige, and around 1220 it was recorded as Hauerseg.
    • Mesolithic microliths have been found below Stanage Edge indicating ancient occupation of the area.
    • In the Outseats area there is evidence of Bronze Age field system, settlement and burial cairn at Dennis Knoll. Close to a now recumbent 2.3m high boundary marker on Bamford Moor is an embanked stone circle or possibly a ring cairn between 11m and 10m diameter.
    • There are remains of a Romano British settlement, possibly a farmstead at a location known as the Warren in the Outseats area. Finds from this site include Roman period pottery and a gritstone quern. An early lead smelting site, variously interpreted as Roman or early Medieval, has been found at Bole Hill.
