Sun 6th December 2020 S Yorks walk meet report

11 people gathered (eventually) in 2 groups on a dank morning in a lay by just outside Sheffield. A most unpromising start was made by the first group with Vanda following some 15 mins behind with the second group when the Rotherham representative eventually arrived.
Setting off up a little used path we reached a ridge, passing en route a small stone shelter where we waited to ensure Vanda hadn’t got lost. Eventually reaching the end of the Houndkirk track we crossed the road to reach the start of the Totley Moor path which was followed for a good distance (including coffee stop) eventually rising to the trig point. Various feats of athleticism were witnessed in the gloom.
Leaving the trig point we headed towards the Owler Bar road which was crossed and lunch taken.
Continuing on and up, passing Lady’s Cross, interestingly described by Mr Warwick. Like being back in the classroom!! Shortly descending past White Edge Lodge we followed a path previously untrodden by Mr Milne, also spotting two red deer stags hiding in the trees.
On reaching the white gate, we crossed into Longshaw, passing a number of well constructed snow persons near the wooden pole. Down past the Fox House, sadly closed, crossing the moor and onwards down through Blackamoor Nature Reserve and back to the cars.
10.5 miles, not many views but no heavy rain. Thanks to all who attended.
Chris has put some pics on Facebook, there may be more later.
