The Peak District – Longshaw Estate and the Padley Gorge

This is the beginning of a short series of videos exploring the Peak District in England with my friend Kevin Hall.

Today we are exploring the Longshaw Estate and the Padley Gorge.

Padley Gorge is a deep but narrow valley in the Peak District, Derbyshire between the village of Grindleford and the A6187 road.

The gorge is wooded with a stream, the Burbage Brook. This stream used to form the boundary between Derbyshire and Yorkshire but the boundary now follows the Hathersage Road, the A6187, formerly the A625.

Padley Gorge begins near Grindleford Station at a stile where a post has been installed. Although the valley continues up towards Hathersage Road and Burbage, the gorge finishes at the edge of the woodland. Padley Gorge forms the backbone of several walks in the area] and the railway station approach road forms a convenient car park for walkers.
