Public Transport based walk with Stephen Smith.
The baby of the walk, weighing in at a mere 8 miles but still, anyone who's done the first two stages might enquire 'why do it' when it comes to this final one of the trilogy.
This walk has but one climb and but one descent. Obviously that means that we spend more than an hour going up a hill (it’s better than it sounds) until we can see for miles around and prepare ourselves for a walk down to Crimsworth Dean, past Lumb Falls, then down the Dean itself and back to the station.
This is a great walk with stunning views if the weather is clear and you can benefit properly from the height. If we have weather that falls short of dreich there is an alternative option that proffers a little more shelter.
NB - walk leader meeting at walk start. The previous walk should have finished in time but if it hasn't please hang on - we'll be there, and don't get too drunk at the station bar.
