I travelled to Matlock, getting off the bus at Hall Leys Park. I went to the toilets there, walked over the bridge and joined the Limestone Way at the back of the railway station.
I stayed on the Limestone Way for nearly two miles until I reached a path that took me to the northern part of Bonsall. I continued across the fields to Wensley.
I then entered South Darley at the top of the hill near the church and then took the steep concessionary footpath that goes up to the summit of Oker Hill: it's a lovely ridge walk for a few minutes on the higher ground. I came down to Oker where I joined the Derwent Valley Heritage Way and returned to Matlock.
