As part of our initiative to get as many of our members involved in the club and with the help of one of our ‘regular’ members Steve Scott we have devised a series of Peak District walks designed to increase in difficulty.
Steve has kindly volunteered to organise the walks………
Sunday 12th April 2015, Dove Dale, classic walk everyone should do.
Sunday 10th May 2015, Hope valley, Mam tor, Castleton area…..
Sunday 7th June 2015, Howden Edge. First step into the dark Peaks. Bit of a climb up (600m)
Sunday 5th July 2015, Kinder Down fall. Route of the original mass trespass, plus a section of the Pennine way.
All will involve either licensed premises or café at some point. Meet at 10am and be walking by 10.15. We will send out detailed information about each walk a month in advance so you can plan your diary and organise lifts. Other than the first walk they will be circular walks.
Walk 1 Dove Dale ‘’A classic walk everyone should do‘’! From main visitors car park to the village of Hartington Walk along the banks of the very picturesque river Dove amongst the steep limestone outcrops, The climbers amongst us could use it as a recce. for future climbs. Explore the caves and cross the river via the stepping stones, there is also a footbridge. The navigation is straight forward… follow the river (mostly). Bring the kids, dogs, mother in law.
