Weather wise, we got the best day of the week, and 11 of us set off from Tideswell. It was lovely to see John Starey and Woody (dog) join us for the first of I hope many Thursdays. His two new knees are fantastic!! The first loop avoiding Monks Dale, but taking the steep up to Worm hill, and then down to Cheedale gave us far reaching views, and the autumn colours seem early this year? Cookie succumbed to buying food at Millers Dale, as he never brings any, but says he’s never hungry! The second loop saw half the group continue across the tops and down to Litton Mill and back up Tideswell Dale. Thanks to all for a very pleasant and sociable walk. One of my favourite White Peak areas. Linda.
