Public Transport based walk with Alan Beeby and Torin Glazer.
After leaving the station we do a brief steep ascent to a small ridge. After this the walk is mostly flat around some amazing scenery. We will then have our lunch stop at Longshaw Lodge where a tea house will be available for the so inclined. Following the Sheffield Country Way bridle path around the area we will then head back to Hathersage.
