We head out from the Star pub up Manchester Road until we reach the A623. We cross directly over the main road (with care!) and climb up to the T-junction at the top of the hill. We then turn right onto Forest Lane and descend to Washouse Lane. Here you turn right back towards Tideswell. After crossing the A623 turn left up Conjoint Lane (towards Litton). Then, at the top turn right and follow Church Lane back down to Tideswell. Finally, it’s left onto the main road and then back to The Star (9.1km/5.8 miles).
