Extra Info:

This is a fairly challenging walk with no easy bailout points so please be sure you're capable of doing the walk at a reasonable pace before coming.

If you wish to drive, Hathersage station has a car park whereas Grindleford Station does not, so it would probably be best to join us on the train when it stop at Hathersage at 09:42. Please inform the walk leader or the walks coordinator if you plan to do this so they know to expect you.
