Public Transport based walk with Stu Edwards & Katherine Hamlett.
Because we liked it so much the first (and second!) time - we're back! Leaving the quaint village of Chinley, we climb north towards Cracken Edge - and on to the ridge of Chinley Churn. Here, we'll meander past the giant rock formations while heading for South Head (a small peak enjoying stunning 360 degree vistas) and the surrounding hills. After lunch our route crosses the moors towards Brown Knoll and then links up with the Pennine Way - taking us via Jacobs Ladder to Edale. To finish the day, we head for the beer garden of The Rambler... the weather hopefully allowing us to crash on the grass, in the shadow of the mighty Kinder Plateau.
