Southern Gritstone Edges, Peak District, with Rachel Bolton

Sunday 16 June

A full day guided walk as part of a small group of usually no more than six people plus your guide onto four of the gritstone edges that the Dark Peak area of the Peak District is famous for.  Throughout the day, your friendly, professional guide will share with you a wealth of knowledge about the local history, geology, wildlife and plant life.


From the village of Baslow we walk up the hillside onto White Edge with the heather covered Big Moor stretching away for miles in one direction, and far reaching views over the Derwent Valley in the other.  Wild red deer are sometimes seen up here.    


The route that we take to return to Baslow takes us along the scenic Froggatt Edge, Curbar Edge and Baslow Edge where we can marvel at the fascinating gritstone rock formations and enjoy further views over the Derwent Valley, and to the hills and moorland beyond.


This walk is about 10 miles/16.2km with about 600 metres of ascent, on paths that can be rough and stony in places.   

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.
