Centenary Way (Derbyshire)

40 km / 25 miles

An east to west walk devised by the Derbyshire Footpaths Preservation Society to commemorate their centenary, connecting Ilkeston with Ashbourne and visiting the lesser known but attractive villages of West Hallam, Duffield, Weston Underwood, Brailsford, Ednaston, Shirley and Osmaston. The Way links with the Bonnie Prince Charlie Walk near Ashbourne.

Derbyshire Footpaths Preservation Society has disbanded and its book on Centenary Way (Derbyshire) is no longer available, but the path line is still shown on OS maps and a GPX file is available below.
