Walk from Lodge

A short walk from the Lodge

From Quarnford Lodge you can walk to explore this beautiful section of the Dane Valley and enjoy rivers, old stone bridges and waterfalls on this lovely walk in the Peak District.

The Three Shires Head is a point on Axe Edge Moor where the counties of Cheshire, Derbyshire, and Staffordshire meet. Here you will find a Grade II-listed packhorse bridge over the River Dane. The bridge is thought to have been constructed in the 18th century. It's a delightful area with a number of small waterfalls and the surrounding Peak District scenery to enjoy. 

From the Lodge the round trip is about 3 miles. Adults walking briskly could complete it in not much over an hour, if you’ve got little ones with you perhaps allow 2 hours walking, and of course they’ll want to dwell a while at the waterfall which is a great spot for a picnic / paddle (or even a dip for the hardy!)

If you’re unsure of directions on the walk you can always take your ‘phone and check your progress on google maps…
