Padley Gorge, Millstone Edge, Higger Tor and Burbage Edge. 

Winter Walk from Longshaw Lodge

1. A Winter Walk from Longshaw Lodge. Peak District, with Rachel Bolton

Saturday 9 January 2021

 

A lovely winter walk, and one of my favourites!  You will be part of a small group of usually no more than five people plus your guide. 

 

After walking through the pleasant grounds of the lodge, we descend to Padley Gorge and explore the beautiful stream, moorland, millstone quarries and rocks around the upper part of the gorge.  Our walk then takes us along Millstone Edge which has one of the most stunning views to be seen in the Peak District!  We climb gradually on to Higger Tor and from there our route follows Burbage edge back to Longshaw.

 

The walk is about 8 miles/13k with about 900 feet/280 metres of elevation.

 

A wonderful walk to bring in the New Year!

 

The cost is £38 per person.  Please book and pay below.  You are booking with Rachel Bolton who will guide the walk on the day.
