Stones and more stones

Public Transport based walk with David Bratley.

22.0 mi

1600m

If you can get anywhere in the Peak Dirstrict that could be classed as a wild place, this walk covers it! Stunning wild scenery, hidden river valleys and views which have no man made structures in them.

But it's a tough walk, over two thirds are off path, no bail out points and no pubs during the walk.

Walk also includes an optional very short scramble about 7m of!

We will be moving at a good pace all day long averaging 3-4km/hr even through deep heather.
