The Edges - Peak District Walk

Thursday 17th May 2007

Time was short today but it looked like being the best day of the week so I opted for a walk along the edges. The drizzle and low cloud at the start of the walk soon started to clear away and by the time I was heading back to the car there was even some sun starting to break through the cloud, something that we seem to have seen very little of for the last week.

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

Distance: 6 miles     Ascent: 226 metres      Time Taken: 3 hrs

Pub Visited: None    Ale Drunk: None

The views along Froggatt Edge can be quite limited, because of the trees, but step off the path and you get this view which stretches from Bamford Edge (L) to Higger Tor (R) with Stanage Edge between them.

Hurkling Stone

I took a slight diversion today to visit the Hurkling Stone, one of many gritstone outcrops that can be found along the edges.
