Welcome to Peak Walking Group! Here's a look back at some 2016 walks to inspire you for 2017.

 

 

In 2016 we went up hill and down dale in Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire, Cheshire....and

 

County Durham. We climbed lots of hills and some 'lows', we ploughed throughmany fields, we trod carefully along ridges and edges, we trailed along many trails, took in two canals and even walked through a Sculpture Park.

 

So, imagine a giant map taking in the year's walks...you would need OL24 and OL1 ofcourse (White and Dark Peak), then there's 279 (Chesterfield Canal and Roche Abbey),110 (Wharncliffe Side) 119 (Wetton Mill), 120 (Moss Valley) to name but a few.

 

 

So back to those highs and lows. We climbed up to Minninglow (at last, having seen itfrom 'everywhere'!), Mam Tor, Win Hill and Losehill, the Heights of Abraham, Lost Lad and Lad's Leap. We walked along Chee Dale, Deep Dale, Bradford Dale, the Moss Valley,the Derwent Valley. We followed the Monsal Trail, Limestone Way, Thornhill Trail, Sheffield Round Walk, the Cuckoo Way. And we had fabulous views from the GreatRidge, Stanage Edge, Derwent Edge. And all this is 'local'.

 

Then we went off 'up North'to Middleton-in-Teesdale for a fabulous weekend which took in the Pennine Way, HighForce and Hannah's Meadow, to name but some highlights.

 

 

 

There is a wealth of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm in the group, so let's boot up, and step out together into 2017!
