Ilam Park, Dovedale and the White Peak

Important notice -

Some of the Stepping Stones at Dovedale are currently flooded making them more difficult to cross. At Ilam Park there has been a landslip so some of the riverside path has been closed due to damage. There are still many route options for you to use.
