UPDATE: Following my recce mission this last weekend I have to make an amendment to the plan. Some parts of the hike are still pretty wet, especially on top of Bleaklow moor. As this is the case we will have to take a slightly longer route. For that reason I want to make you all aware that I now estimate a time of four to six hours with the route coming in at around twelve kilometres; roughly eight miles. If the weather and visibility are as good as they were yesterday (2/7/17) it will be a fantastic day in the great outdoors. I cannot wait!
I am very happy to announce my first guided Hi(ke) through the Peak District. Come along and say "hi" on Saturday 8th July.
Meeting at 10am in Hope Woodland carpark we'll head out along the stream in Lady Clough woodland; destined for Bleaklow Moor. Once out on the moor we'll explore along the Pennine way before cutting back towards the crash site of "Over-Exposed" and Higher Shelf Stones; finally returning to our starting location.
I estimate the walk to be around four hours long, give or take group numbers and stoppages. The walk it's self is twelve kilometres and suitable for those with a reasonable level of fitness but there will be nothing too strenuous .
What you'll need to bring:
- A sturdy pair of walking boots/shoes.
- A waterproof jacket, perhaps trousers too if you have them.
- Enough water and snacks to sustain yourself. If it's going to be really hot bring extra water.
- A hat and Sunscreen if the weather calls for it.
- A sense of adventure and whatever camera you like.
If you'd like to attend or have any further questions please get in touch. I am happy to help.
