Report on Thursday 5th September walk

Sep 6, 2013
The first Thursday walk after a break during the month of August. A select group of 3 met at the stile where Bamford Edge climbers now park, and set off in an anti-clockwise loop towards Stanage. The ‘jungle-high’ bracken on my recce of a week ago had now flopped over the path, making it disappear, so the going was even harder for a while, but we soon emerged onto open moorland and successfully found the small stone circle [picture just posted on Facebook] before heading up to the path below Stanage Edge, then contouring round below High Neb and Crow Chin to the A57/Manchester Road, which we followed briefly before a squelchy stream-fording and lunch on the way to Cutthroat Bridge. A good track and then path skirted Bamford Moor, with great views over Ladybower Reservoir, then along the top of Bamford Edge and back to our cars – approx 7 miles in 4 hours. One never quite knows who may turn up on Castle walks, but Hugh was unexpectedly free that day, and Dubbo over in the UK from Germany for a few weeks was a complete surprise – thank you both for your good company and a chance to really catch up with both of you.
