Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

This is a fairly easy 11 mile walk (only 2 short climbs of any note) with some magnificent scenery virtually all the way. Starting from the old lead mining village of Monyash, the walk follows the "Limestone Way" for appox. 3 miles across open countryside passing by One Ash Grange Farm (12th. century grange with some parts still there including pig sties) before dropping down to Lathkill Dale. At this point we put a 1.75 mile loop in up to the picturesque village of Over Haddon where there are some fine views. After completing the loop, the walk continues through the scenic Lathkill Dale alongside the river for most of the way back to the start.
