The Edges Walk - August 4th

Posted 5/8/2018

Today’s 8 mile walk for our party of 8 ladies started from the Grouse Inn on the edge of the Longshaw Estate. The sun was shining but with a pleasant breeze to cool us down we walked towards the Hurkling Stone and along White Edge before the obligatory group photo at White Edge trig point.

We then crossed the Curbar road, where we were delighted to encounter a small group of highland cattle on the path coming towards us. This was followed not long after by another with her nervous calf. We stopped briefly to admire them then made our way to Wellington’s Monument where we paused for lunch.

Continuing on our way we passed the Eagle Stone and headed for Curbar Gap. The rest of the walk was along Curbar Edge and Froggatt Edge and then back to the Grouse Inn for a well earned drink in the now hot sunshine.

Well done to everyone who completed this walk in the hot sunshine.
