Brief Des
  
 The walk visits three counties - Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire - and offers an interesting walk in this fairly remote part of the Peak District. The walk starts from the small car park near Gradbach and meanders near the River Dane, passes the Three Shires Head and goes across some open moorland. The Gradbach Mill cafe stays open until 4pm so we should be back in time for a cake if you fancy.
