WALK NOTES
An overcast but dry day. There were glimpses of sun and blue sky throughout the walk. Started at Dennis Knoll car park which is not far from the base of the edge. Not many walkers at the start but as the morning progressed the numbers increased. There were climbers practicing on the rocks under the edge too. Once on the edge it was an easy walk to High Neb (458m). On the way back I encountered many of the Millstones which were scattered around below the edge. Once quarried and finished in this area, the finished and half-finished discards show how quickly the market collapsed in the nineteenth century.
