Travel One way is to head for Ashbourne then take theA523 towards Leek but turn off at the A52 towards Froghall. This takes about 71 mins from Loughborough and is 51 miles. This route via Ashbourne is easier to follow than the Utoxeter/Cheedale route. The last R turn to Froghall Wharf is unusually sharp.
Another way is via the A50 and taking the A522 though Cheadle. The Cheadle part is a little messy and do watch out when leaving the A50 for the A522 (you want to head N but the turnoff is on the S side of the A50 before passing over the A50). From Loughborough the time needed is 67 mins and the distance is 49 miles.
