Public Transport based walk with Sarah Peppiatt.
Following on from November's walk along the first stretch of the Peak District Boundary Trail here's another section of the route running up the western edge of the Peak District as far as Glossop. Got snow first time round so fingers crossed for a bit more this time round!

Ambitious walk for the time of the year so expect a brisk pace to complete the walk before dark. Also expect mud, awkward stiles and several stiff climbs/descents and come appropriately equipped. Bring a torch just in case please. Walk is mostly over exposed terrain so you'll need warm layers and good waterproofs.
NB: walk finishes on completely different train line so this is not a suitable walk to drive to.
