Eyam Moore

Walk 15: Eyam Moor and More

A long but relatively easy walk in the heart of the Peak District that offers 360-degree views of beautiful landmarks, including Stanage Edge, Froggatt Edge, Millstone Edge and Mam Tor.

Starting near Sir William Hill, you will cross Eyam Moor and walk down to the tranquil area of Stoke Ford. A gentle ascent takes you through Abney Wood to Abney, along quiet country lanes and sprawling moorland, passing Bleak Knoll.

Do not rely on the guidance below to soley navigate the hike. We highly recommend downloading the accompanying GPX file and loading it into a navigation device/app. Always take a physical map and compass with you as backup, and know how to use them. Take care out there.


Starting just short of Sir William Hill you progress over Eyam Moor and down to the tranquil area of Stoke Ford. From here you gently ascend up through Abney Wood to Abney, then proceed along quiet country lanes before once again hitting sprawling moorland, passing Bleak Knoll.

A visit to the village of Great Hucklow allows you to top up on refreshments before hitting the final section of the walk that passes both the Barrel Inn pub (more refreshments?) and Sir William Hill.
