Padley Gorge is a deep but narrow valley in the Peak District with gently flowing streams and tumbling waterfalls in a woodland setting near the Longshaw Estate and Grindlefo.
Very peaceful and very photogenic. Never seen so many people with cameras so must be a popular place to get some good pics if you’re into photography.
Well pathed, loop trail. If you stay right of the stream you’ll eventually come to a bridge that has a post with ‘Padley Gorge’ on it.
Cross the bridge and make your way back. Good walk for everyone with plenty to see. Wouldn’t recommend prams or wheelchairs.
