WALK NOTES

Baslow Village Hall - Eyam Youth Hostel - Abney Village Hall - Houseley - Great Longstone Village Hall - Bakewell Station - Rowsley Bar Wood - Beeley Village Hall - Baslow Village Hall

It was a foggy start to the walk. Many walkers entered for the walk on the day. In the end 352 walkers and runners took part. The ascent on to Baslow Edge was steep but at least everyone had fresh legs. The fog remainded for the whole duration along the edges and all the way to Eyam. The sun then came out while crossing Eyam Moor. It turned out to be a hot day - 24°C during the afternoon. The final stage across Chatsworth Park was a very tiring one with the heat but at least it was flat. It was a very enjoyable day.
