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.
Pub visited: None Ale Drunk: None

Looking across Stoke Flat, from Froggatt Edge, to White Edge.
The terrain is much easier on this part of the walk, which is why it's so popular.
It's somewhere around this point of the walk that Froggatt Edge becomes Curbar Edge.
