Public Transport based walk with Sarah Peppiatt.
Start the year as you mean to go on, wiith a long walk, starting 15 minuntes after sunrise and probably finishing just after sunset. 16.5 miles along some of the less walked edges south of Hathersage with quite a bit of up and down. It'll wear off the Christmas dinner!
