Public Transport based walk with Sally Grimwood.
This is a long circular walk of varied terrain, which takes in a few interesting sites, including Cats Tor, Shining Tor, Windgather Rocks, Jenkin Chapel, Taxal Moor and a very beautiful garden centre. Most of the ascent is at the beginning with some of it being steep, but there are a few cheeky little climbs towards the end as well.
It can be boggy at times so please bring your gaiters.
There'll be a pub stop at the end and a curry for anybody who's interested.
