Discover walks for autumn in South Derbyshire and Leicestershire

As the leaves change colour and become crisp underfoot it becomes a lovely time of year for a walk. Choose from exploring Dovedale at its most peaceful or watching the deer rut at Calke. And afterwards, warm up in one of our cafes or tea-rooms with a hot drink or light bite to eat.
