A spectacular guided group walk along Stanage Edge visiting Keira Knightley Rock from Pride & Prejudice. This walk is a shorter version of our popular Stanage Edge & Burbage guided walk with less distance and height gain but the same amazing views.
Starting off fairly gently, we head down to North Lees, the inspiration for Thornfield Hall in Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre and a popular photo location. Next we climb up to the famous gritstone edge of Stanage, meaning "Stone Edge", a 5 km long gritstone escarpment famous for climbing. Here we visit the rock now known as Keira Knightley Rock and made famous from the 2005 film of Pride and Prejudice. This makes for the perfect shot for one of those must have Instagram moments.
The walk continues along a medieval packhorse route to the summit of Stanage Edge, with spectacular views all the way along. From here we continue walking to Burbage and visit it's ancient hill fort of Carl Wark. From Burbage we return to the car park after making one final visit to Stanage Edge to see some of the old Mill Stones, now the symbol of the Peak District National Park and another great photo location.
