If you would like to visit the Walking Together Trail you can find a downloadable map here which indicates the route and shows in which zone particular miners are commemorated.

A good starting point to walk the route is the Markham Vale Environment Centre (MVEC), Markham Lane, Chesterfield, S44 5HY.

There is lots of information about how to get to MVEC by bike, bus, train and car at - https://www.derbyshire.gov.uk/business/economic/markham/markham-environment-centre/getting-to-markham-vale/getting-to-markham-vale-environment-centre.aspx.

Free parking is available at MVEC seven days a week and toilet facilities are generally available here weekdays 9am-5pm.

The walking trail is also accessible on foot from Duckmanton village and there is limited on street parking available at this end of the route.

Please note that for certain sections the trail crosses busy roads so please be extra vigilant especially if crossing with children or vulnerable adults.

We hope that you enjoy your visit. We are always interested in hearing feedback which you can submit via our website or via our Facebook page.
