Sunday was spent in a new neck of the woods. I drove to Hathersage and parked at the National Trust Longshaw estate.
I followed the network of trails through ancient woods and jumbles of rocks to the start of Froggatt Edge and kept on trudging in the rain until I ran out of rock at the Robin Hood Pub near Baslow.
I walked back admiring the edges from a different angle from the shelter of the Derwent Valley. The weather was pretty miserable all told, but this would be a fantastic trip in the summer, with plenty of opportunity for the odd scramble.
Here’s to longer and, hopefully, drier days.
