Ashover Rock


Ashover walks - 'A Seat with a View' and Ashover Rock

Explore the countryside in and around Ashover Village.


You can find ten locally made seats have been placed in special places within Ashover Parish. The seats are all in quiet areas, most with stunning views.

The seats are made and assembled by Bolsover Woodland Enterprises, who source the wood locally and make and construct the seats on site.

Alternatively from Ashover Parish Hall Carpark, a 4 mile circular walk around Ashover explores the countryside around the village. You can climb up to the Ashover Rock viewpoint, have a rest and enjoy the views of the Parish.

Get here on the bus: Ashover is served by the Stagecoach X17 bus service, which runs from Sheffield and Chesterfield to Matlock up to every 30 mins, and also stops at Matlock Bath, Cromford and Wirksworth hourly, 7 days a week.
