Thursday Walk report 17 Sep 2020

Six members and a dog gathered at Shatton for the first CMC Thursday walk (and the first CMC outdoor meet) since March. It was of course done in accordance with the BMC Covid guidance. It was a beautiful warm sunny day, perfect walking conditions, and with stunning views. We started on the road to Offerton, with views north over the River Derwent to Bamford and Stanage Edges. From Offerton we took the delightful bridleway heading northwest across Offerton Moor. Near the top we paused for a coffee break. The bridleway way took us to Shatton Lane which we followed past the Shatton mast around the head of Overdale, giving us views south over Abney to Bretton. Leaving the track we crossed a couple of fields to reach Bradwell Edge and yet another view, over Bradwell Dale and Bradwell village, with Mam Tor, Kinder, Win and Lose Hills etc in the distance. A short walk along the edge brought us to Rebellion Knoll, our lunch spot where we could rest and admire the views of the Hope cement works. After our picnic we rejoined Brough Lane. Our route was then past Elmore Hill Farm and along Townfield Lane back to Shatton. An excellent walk.
7.4 miles 1190 ft of ascent.
