Saturday 19th April 2008

I had been invited to join Steve and Lorraine for their walk along Stanage Edge this morning. The route had been chosen because there were a choice of possible return routes but as it felt, and looked, more like a winter than a spring day we opted for the shorter route and returned via the path below the edge.

Distance: 4.75 miles     Ascent: 197 metres      Time Taken: 2 hours 30 mins

Boundary Stone

The boundary stone that can be found at Stanage End.  Lorraine has been able to establish that the WM stands for William Cameron Moore who owned Moscar Moor  and parts of Bamford. The other side has WW on it which represents William Wilson who owned Hallam Moor
