Walking the Edale Valley and Kinder Scout

High Peak, Derbyshire. Tuesday 25-April-2023.

Gorgeous day and breathtaking scenery for a walk around Edale and Kinder Scout in Derbyshire. Went for height rather than length today along trails that were sometimes good and sometimes more challenging on our feet!

Typical views of the Derbyshire Peak District.

Some of the usual suspects.

Everywhere we looked was just gorgeous.

Surveying her realm?

Lots of stones all weathered into interesting shapes.

More stones.

Yet more stones.

According to the map there should have been a wall here and then we realised we were walking on it!

The cairn marks where our path joined the Pennine Way.

Just gorgeous views on the way back down.

Looking back up at where we just walked before the final descent.

There were two options on the way down. Jacobs Ladder was the steeper and supposed to be the more difficult.

This bridleway was supposed to be the easier way down but it was still steep and the stones were very tough on our feet!

An excellent day's walking.
