Public Transport based walk with Sarah Peppiatt.
An easier walk than the morning heading south along the River Derwent as far as Bubell before returning over Curbar and Froggatt Edge. If the weather's kind the views back over the Peak District should be superb...

While this is an easier walk than the morning and the pace will be more relaxed, it is also a late start. Consquently we do need to move at a reasonable pace if we're to catch trains. If you're new to the group or unsure of fitness you may do better to start with a walk that doesn't involve chasing trains....
You'll need enough food/fluid for the afternoon especially if it's hot. See warning above on previous walk about stingers/stiles and advisability of shorts.
