We meet at 9:15am to be ready for a 9:30am start in the Coldwell End car park in the village of Youlgreave.  Car parking here is free of charge. 



If you would like to stay locally the night before or after this walk, the village Youlgreave would be ideal.  There are several other small villages nearby, or the town of Bakewell is just a short drive away.
