Saturday 31st January 2009

After two weeks of being stuck in the house recuperating from a reoccurrence of an old back injury it was nice to get my walking boots back on, even if it was for a gentle stroll along the relatively flat edges. This isn't a walk I would normally do at the weekend, as it is a very popular area and I prefer to avoid the crowds whenever possible, but under the circumstances it was a sensible combination of terrain and distance.

Start: Curbar Gap car park (SK 2623 7470)

Route:

Curbar Gap car park - White Edge (TP) - Grouse Inn - Froggatt Edge - Curbar Edge - Curbar Gap car park

Distance: 5.75 miles     Ascent: 221 metres      Time Taken: 3 hours

Terrain: Good tracks some across moorland.

Weather: Cold.

Pub Visited: None    Ale Drunk: None

Higger Tor

Higger Tor from White Edge. Normally Higger Tor dominates the view when walking along  White Edge in this direction, but it was so hazy today that it was barely visible for most of the walk.

Stoke Flat

Froggatt Edge path

The terrain is much easier on this part of the walk, which is why it's so popular.

Curbar Edge

It's somewhere around this point of the walk that Froggatt Edge becomes Curbar Edge.
