Public Transport based walk with Sarah Peppiatt.
A nice late start, taking advantage of the longer daylight hours, and a relaxed walk from Hadfield to Broadbottom, following the Pennine Bridleway mostly. NB: although the walk leader usually leads hard walks it is absoutely guaranteed that the distance/ascent are as advertised and the walk will be done at a gentle pace (around 2mph)!!
