Public Transport based walk with David Bratley.
This is a hard walk, the vast majority of which is off path over beautiful moorland. If the weather is good it will be a lovely walk with great views and the chance to see some of the Peaks wildlife including Mountain Hares, Grouse and the odd bird of prey.
