You can also download the “Walks Around Denstone” leaflet which is in the form of a two-page pdf file which you may want to print out. (This dates from 2012 so be aware that some things may have changed.)

JCB Lakeside Walk

If you are staying in the village, even if you are not much of a walker, take a stroll round the lake in front of JCB World HQ and enjoy a view of the Weaver Hills and other beautiful scenery. You can also see many waterbirds that choose to make the lake their home, including black swans (and sometimes their cygnets!)
