Sunday Walk report – 6th January 2019

A party of 14 and three dogs assembled at Hope Primary School under an overcast sky. Although cool, the long ascent of Lose Hill soon had members removing layers, and when we all finally arrived on the summit the sun began to break through. It was a busy day on the Great Ridge, and we had fine views into the Edale valley although at the foot of Back Tor the sun was obscured again by low cloud. We descended from Hollins Cross and our first break was taken just after passing underneath the railway line. Thankful that we were no longer on the Ridge, which was now in thick cloud, we followed the path to the Youth Hostel and onwards to an almost sheltered lunch stop at the bottom of Jaggers Clough.
After arriving at Hope Cross the sun re-appeared and the cameras were clicking. We had good views back towards Edale with the hills shrouded in mist, whilst ahead Win Hill and the Hope Valley were bathed in sunshine. We followed the track to Fullwood Stile Farm, and returned to our starting point after 10.1 miles. Thanks to all who came along.
