Leisurely Lakes Weekend... Places still available....Only £19:50 for 2 nights We are planning to take on a couple of decent hills but at a pace we are all comfortable with. Scope for some to tackle some scrambling if thats what you fancy.
A question for anyone intending in joining my Chatsworth short walk on October 12th. If we make good time there could be the possibility of visiting the sculptures in the Chatsworth gardens. A garden ticket is £12. Would anyone be interested? It would mean making the walk around 10 miles(plus the walk around the gardens) opposed to the 8.5m that it is currently. Anyone not interested could easily walk back to the car park by the river.
Both now have leaders (Estelle for the short, Brendan for the long). It should be an awesome day with grouse, bracken, hares, views and millstones.
The short walk is comparatively easy for a Dark Peak walk (8 miles, not much ascent / descent - short off path potentially boggy section across Moscar Moor - gaiters recommended for this bit) and as such is recommended as an introduction to the wilder side of the Peak District.
Long walk throws in a bit of Derwent Edge, which is always a good thing.
Dogs are not allowed on certain sections of the route, so unfortunately you will have to give Rover a rest this week.
Pub at the end for drinks, nibbles and full supper if the mood takes us - the excellent Ladybower Inn or, if it's full (Sheffield Walking Group planning the same on the day) Yorkshire Bridge as a back up.
Look forward to seeing you there
