Manifold Valley and Thor’s Cave Walk

In this part of the Peak District’s White Peak, you’re so far south that you’re in Staffordshire. This walking route explores the natural cave known as Thor’s Cave, before following the Manifold river to Ilam Park and returning high on the opposite bank.

You will find it hard to miss Thors Cave (not National Trust) located above the Manifold Valley. It is a steep walk up, but the magnificent views down into the valley make it well worth the effort. National Trust.
