Stanage Edge Walk - October 3rd

Posted 3/10/2020

A rather wet walk at Hathersage for slightly depleted DVWG groups today, as nine people completing a circuit from Hathersage onto Stanage Edge.

Starting from the station we walked through the beautiful village and ascended through Cliff Wood and along Ridgeway Side and alongside Dennis Knoll emerging below Stanage Edge.

We ascended the broad path onto the edge walking along Long Causeway towards Stanage Pole. Unfortunately the weather had now deteriorated and so had the visibility, we therefore abandoned plans to visit Stanage Pole and descended through Stanage Plantation to safety.

Our walk back to Hathersage was passing North Lees Hall crossing field paths to Hathersage Church where we went to see the grave of Little John on our way back through the village.

Well done to the nine people who completed this 6.7 miles walk, which with better weather is quite a gem. It was pleasing that we missed the worst of the weather due to our early start.
