The Way, designed for multi-use, links the Ridgeway National Trail with the Trans Pennine Trail across the shires of Middle England.
For the most part it follows bridleways and quiet lanes with, wherever possible, alternative waymarked footpath routes provided for walkers. In Derbyshire particularly, the bridleway development for other users has yet to be completed. The Brampton Valley Way (14 miles) is used between Boughton Crossing near Northampton and Little Bowden Crossing near Market Harborough. From Whaley Bridge in Derbyshire to Compstall in Greater Manchester the route is coincident with the Goyt Way (10 miles; see also E-Routes - E2). After this, part of the Etherow-Goyt Valley Way is used to the finish. All three Ways are named on OS mapping.
The folder listed below has details of the whole route and it is also obtainable from the Leicestershire website which has maps of the Leicestershire section.
