It seems traditional to account for people and dogs in the opening sentence; unfortunately we forgot to count the people, but remember there were two dogs…

This was a rather shortened walk to avoid a repetition of Fair Flora’s demise at the Derwent stepping stones (see Sean’s recent Thursday walk report)… Starting from Crossland Road and passing the Hathersage allotments, we ascended to Birley farm and then took the permissive path from the junction of Coggers and Birley lanes, with beautiful views along the Hope Valley, to Gatehouses, Outland and Green’s House via the site of the old pub, returning to Hathersage via Cowclose farm – the dairy producing Stanage Millstone cheese.

The five and a half miles of the walk appeared to be enough to justify several cakes at Kathy and John’s afterwards.
Thanks to everyone who came along and great to see Rosie back for a full walk.
