Bus walk – 10th December 2023 meet report

The 65 bus arrived at Hunters Bar at the advertised 9.47. Cathy, Lorna and Simon boarded at the Fox House. We got off at Tideswell; as that’s where the timetable told us the bus terminated. As we looked back the bus destination morphed to Millers Dale; where we’d wanted to go; and Buxton. Too late to board again, we set off across fields to intercept the Limestone Way. By-passing the bogs of the dale we took a minor road to the East, eventually cutting down into Dam Dale and then to Peak Forest. A section enlivened with political debate. Back on the Limestone Way we extended the walk by going round the top of the Winnats, down the old road to the Odin Mine, then to Castleton. 17k. Spent half an hour in the visitor centre before catching the 272 back to the Fox House, again, right on 16.08. Feeling green and virtuous we retrieved our cars. Nice to do a bus trip which worked, especially for those of us with a pass. Geoff.
