Winter Solstice Sunrise

Public Transport based walk with Arthur Embleton.

7.5 mi


A very early morning Saturday start, but weather permitting we will be rewarded with a sunrise on the shortest day of the year.

The plan is to meet at Edale station and walk to the sumit of Hollins Cross.  The sunrise is due at 8:04.  We will then walk to Chapel-en-le-Firth station in time for John Ireland's walk.  For those of you feeling up to it, you can then continue on his walk.

Bring snacks, warm clothing and a head torch.
