Walk Report Sunday 20th January 2019

Ten people met at Wildboar Clough car park before setting off in the clag along a pleasant woodland path through ankle deep snow. Arriving at Three Shires Head we admired the two dip pools. Note to self and other wild swimmers – definitely worth a return trip mid week when warmer. Here we paused for a snack and debated the directions of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire. Onward we trod through the mist, mostly following tracks and minor roads. We stopped again on top of Axe Edge Moor for a short lunch break, with nowhere else to sit but in the snow. Unfortunately, there were no views of the Goyt Valley, as advertised, until mile 9, just outside The Cat and Fiddle. Blue sky broke through and glimpses of distant skylines most welcomed. The terrain became more interesting here as we descended into the stream gully, of Danethorne Hollow, before arriving at the carpark, shortly afterwards. A 10.5 mile round completed – thanks to all who turned out.
