A fairly strenuous walk of about 7.5 km (4 1/2 miles), suitable for older children, but not recommended for young children or people with limited mobility.
This walk climbs past old coal and iron workings to The Whistle Inn and then follows a hillside track. We visit the sites of a number of small drift mines, the last of which only closed in 2009. We then descend the path to Forgeside and back to the World Heritage Centre.
Bring refreshments and wear appropriate clothes and footwear for the weather and terrain.
No dogs allowed.
