Froggatt Edge - Peak District Walk

Tuesday 28th July 2009

The forecast was for a bright start to the day, so I opted for a short walk that didn't involve traveling too far from home. Any hopes of catching some sunshine disappeared as soon as I got out of the car, felt the cold edge to the wind and surveyed the rather grey sky. As I know this is a bit of a tourist hotspot I headed for White Edge first so as that I could avoid the crowds at the start of the walk. The correct decision as by the time I reached Curbar Edge it was very busy and the car park was over-flowing.

Start: Curbar Gap car park (SK 2624 7470)

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

Distance: 5.5 miles     Ascent: 208 metres      Time Taken: 2 hours 30 mins

Terrain: Generally good paths and fields.

Weather: Cool with light rain.

Pub Visited: None    Ale Drunk: None
