A Bleaklow Cautionary . 2014-07-29 11.4 km7.1 mi 6h:44m 64 zdjęć

Map

It was going to be an easy access walk from Doctor's Gate to the Boulton-Paul Defiant site at Near Bleaklow Stones with a return depending on whim and weather . And all started well , with an impressive break-through for the sun near Hearn Clough . Add to that kestrels , and a close view of a short-eared owl , and the cloud over the tops wasn't much of a turn-off .

A Kinder Miscellany 2014-07-02 17.1 km10.6 mi 11h:30m 168 zdjęć

Map

An interesting trip , which developed as it  went along . The broad premise was to go up via Crowden Clough , and head initially for the Downfall via Kinder Gates . The rest would be largely dependent on how the going was .Ascending the clough it was soon obvious that very little water was coming down it .

Bleaklow Stones via Alport Castles 2014-06-25 17 km10.6 mi 9h:34m 112 zdjęć

Map

One of the quickest ways on to the tops is the path to Alport Castles from the Westend Valley , and it also has the great advantage of being excellent underfoot , and giving the option of multiple routes over Westend Moor , or up the Alport . All I had firmly in mind was a trip to Bleaklow Stones , and a probable return via Grinah/Barrow Stones , so it was the obvious choice .

Eastern Edges 2014-06-13 17.7 km11 mi 11h:01m 108 zdjęć

Map

I haven't been 'proper' walking for a while after a slight back problem , so this is a bit of  reintroduction , and purposely close to easy escapes . The downside is the amount of reservoir track required to make up the circle . You can come off down Howden Clough and see the old valve reservoir for the dams  , but that can be trickier than you think , and doesn't knock much distance off .

Stanage Edge 2014-04-16 11.1 km6.9 mi 5h:46m 65 zdjęć

Map

This is one of those trips that you never bother recording because they are so familiar - a walk along Stanage Edge is just one of those things you're always doing if you live round here . Today though I had the GPS with me , the weather was exceptional (apart from a fairly stiff 'Stanage breeze' on the top) , so here it is .

Bleaklow South from Doctors Gate 2013-09-20 13.2 km8.2 mi 6h:33m 115 zdjęć

Map

I was going to go over to Shiny Clough and work my way up to the Stones from there , but cloudbase and a heavily waterlogged moor  made that feel more like a challenge walk than a pleasant day out . So I veered south-eastish from Bleaklow Head , spent some time watching the clouds roll by at Fork Stones , and then worked my way up to Bleaklow Stones , where I did the same .

Bleaklow Northern Edges from Doctors Gate 2013-07-18 17.2 km10.7 mi 10h:21m 119 zdjęć

Map

I've usually walked in the southern part of the Dark Peak , largely because living in southern Sheffield makes the Snake and Hathersage roads the most convenient ways out . This time I thought I would see if I could tie the northern Bleaklow edges into a walk starting from the south .The Pennine Way makes for easy access , and was deserted early in the morning .

The Compact Derwent Watershed 2013-07-12 22.5 km14 mi 10h:37m 84 zdjęć

Map

A pretty hot day for the UK , no rain  for ages , and clear , if possibly hazy air -so pretty good conditions for a walk taking in the Etherow / Derwent  watershed line . It's normally a pretty squelchy outing .But today it was rather bouncy , and frighteningly crackly dry . Tinder springs to mind as the analogy , as the warning notices at the gate down to Slippery Stones underlined .
