Public Transport based walk with Sarah Peppiatt.

20.5 mi


A very varied walk from Disley to Buxton that proceeds in a less than direct route! Expect a lot of ascent, a lot of awkward stiles, and some rough wet paths. Two bailout points so this is a good walk if you're wanting to push yourself a bit further: but you will need to walk at the pace of the group even if you intend to leave early.
