    CMC Thursday walk 17 September 2020 Report
    Six members and a dog gathered at Shatton for the first
    CMC Thursday walk (and the first CMC outdoor meet) since
    March. It was of course done in accordance with the BMC
    Covid guidance. It was a beautiful warm sunny day, perfect
    walking conditions, and with stunning views. We started on
    the road to Offerton, with views north over the River
    Derwent to Bamford and Stanage Edges. From Offerton we took
    the delightful bridleway heading northwest across Offerton
    Moor. Near the top we paused for a coffee break. The
    bridleway way took us to Shatton Lane which we followed past
    the Shatton mast around the head of Overdale, giving us
    views south over Abney to Bretton. Leaving the track we
    crossed a couple of fields to reach Bradwell Edge and yet
    another view, over Bradwell Dale and Bradwell village, with
    Mam Tor, Kinder, Win and Lose Hills etc in the distance. A
    short walk along the edge brought us to Rebellion Knoll, our
    lunch spot where we could rest and admire the views of the
    Hope cement works. After our picnic we rejoined Brough Lane.
    Our route was then past Elmore Hill Farm and along Townfield
    Lane back to Shatton. An excellent walk.
    7.4 miles 1190 ft of ascent.
