The weather is looking mixed this Easter bank holiday weekend. Saturday sunny-ish, Sunday and Monday cloudy with a bit of rain, wind is forecast gentle to moderate all three days.
So what to do. If you have my book Dark Peak Walks here are some suggestions to escape the crowds.
Walk No.7 Wyming Brook to Stanage Edge – 11 Miles
A superb gorge with a tumbling stream, a lot of history and then Stanage Edge. Throw in some benchmarks, trig pillars, Stanedge Pole, and those water bowls and you have a great walk.
Walk No.15 Low Bradfield and Dale Dyke – 6 Miles
A relaxing walk, that can be done in a morning or afternoon. Huge amount of history, beautiful woodlands, lots of raptors to be seen and ice cream at the end. What more could you want.
Walk 23 Kinder Scout – 10 Miles
Its been really dry of late so how about a venture into the centre of Kinder Scout, test you navigation skills and not get your feet wet. It can be done.
Walk 26 Dunford Bridge to Ramsden Clough – 11.5 Miles
The chances are that you will have the place to yourself on this walk. Famous last words I know, but rarely do I see anyone and this walk has some magnificent views in a little visited area. Try something new.
Four walks all with mixed terrain, ascent and distance with plenty of things to see along the way. Easter holidays and something for the weekend.
Beats decorating. So Alison tells me.
