This weekend I will be embarking on a cracking little adventure in The Peak District.
I will be getting the train up from London to Sheffield then another train onward into the Peak District to the village of Bamford. From there I will either hitch-hike or hopefully find a bus to take me north to The Upper Derwent Valley. Once there I will start to ascend onto Derwent Edge thentracking the gritstone edges south for two days I will eventually arrive at the tiny village of Baslow at the southern tip of the route.
The hike will have incorporated Derwent Edge, Stanage Edge, Burbage Edge, Froggatt Edge, Curbar Edge and finally Baslow Edge. I intend to camp overnight near Hathersage in the shadow of Stanage Edge on the tiny North Lees campsite.
Although an adventure in itself this weekend is really a trial run and some much needed in the field training for an attempt at the Yorkshire 3 Peaks later in the year – please see previous post – http://wp.me/pPdIP-ER
I will be tweeting throughout the hike and I hope that some of you will follow my blow by blow progress – see Twitter Updates to the right of this post and the Follow Me on Twitter button to get connected.
Below is the planned trail route for the 2-dayer encompassing over 20+miles.
Here is the original post with more in depth details about the hike and explaining the original idea behind the whole mad concept – http://wp.me/pPdIP-bL
