    CMC Thursday walk 2 October 2014 – Report
    13 members set out from Bradwell in good weather. Leaving
    the village up Top Hole Road, we ascended through a rather
    overgrown Hartle Dale, continuing up Green Dale to join
    Batham Gate, the line of the old Roman Road. A path across
    Bradwell Moor, past old mineshafts, took us to the top of
    the moor. Here we enjoyed our coffee break while enjoying
    views down towards the Peak Forest area. A descent to the
    Cop on the Limestone Way was followed by a path across
    fields to Oxlow Rake. The route took us through a farmyard
    before traversing round to Conies Dale and the umpteenth
    stile. We followed the path uphill to some trees where we
    had our picnic. Grassy banks, walls, and fallen tree
    branches provided a choice of perches, and again we enjoyed
    great views. After lunch we continued through the old mining
    area to reach the bridleway which runs north of Eldon Hill.
    A stroll along this, crossing the Limestone Way and then a
    path through fields and more stiles brought us back to
    Bradwell where tea and home-made cakes (thanks, Rosy!) were
    consumed. 8.2 miles, 1360 ft of ascent. Andy.
