Tors Moors and Gritstone Edges guided walk

Sunday 27 August 2017 (Now fully booked)  

& Sunday 18 March 2018

 

A full day guided walk as part of a small group of usually no more than six people plus your guide to explore some of the stunning tors, moors and gritstone edges to the east of the village of Hathersage.  Throughout the day, your friendly, professional guide will share with you a wealth of knowledge.

 

Highlights of the walk will include Carhead Rocks, the southern end of Stanage Edge, Higger Tor, Carl Wark, Burbage Edge, Millstone Edge, and Over Owler Tor.  This is a great time of year to see the heather in flower on the moors, do don't forget your camera!  

 

We will probably stop for a coffee during the day at the National Trust tea room on the Longshaw Estate.
