5 of us met by the side of Ladybower and crossed the dam for the steady ascent of Win Hill.After a brief hail shower we reached the the summit for a ” pre lunch” sheltered just below the trig point,out of the wind with clear views all around.
Marian then peeled off to return to the cars while the rest of us continued to Hope Cross where lunch proper was enjoyed.
A descent through the woods then led us to the Woodlands valley followed by the push up to the pass above Hagg Side.The ridge was then followed over Bridge End Pasture in glorious sunshine with beautiful all round views.The twin summits of Crook Hill lit up beautifully in the winter sunlight was particularly impressive ( why didn’t I bring my camera ?!).
A steady descent then led us down to the Ladybower viaduct and so to the cars.
A great day in the Peaks.
