Wednesday 27th February 2008

After Sunday's trek along the High Peak Trail I wanted a relatively flat walk that I knew I could shorten if necessary, although in the end I did the route I had planned in full. Rather than follow my usual route along the top of Curbar Edge I started out following the track below the edge before making the short ascent onto the top and extended the walk by heading down to Nether Padley thus avoiding a stretch of road walking.

Start: Curbar car park (SK 2622 7470)

Route:

Curbar car park - Curbar Edge - Froggatt Edge - Nether Padley - Tumbling Hill - White Edge Lodge - Lady's Cross - Barbrook Reservoir - Ramsley Reservoir - Jack Flat - Baslow Edge - Curbar car park

Distance: 10.5 miles     Ascent: 369 metres      Time Taken: 5 hours 35 mins

Terrain: Good paths. One short scramble which can be avoided.

Weather: Cloudy with sunny spells.

Pub Visited: None    Ale Drunk: None
