A lovely sunny day (only a short time when sun was obscured by the clouds). I had walked to Stanage Edge last year but on that occation it was a short walk. I started in Hathersage and walked up Baulk Lane. The path tookme past North Lees Hall which is owned by the National Trust. It was very impressive. After a short while I was gaining height up onto Stanage Edge. Walked towards High Neb and on to Crow Chin where I then descended back down the edge and continued past the Millstones scattered everywhere underneath Stanage Edge. Eventally joined the path back to the top and then continued past White Path Moss and on to the Trig Point at the South end of Stanage Edge. The views from the edge today were fantastic especially across to the north to Hope, Castleton, Win Hill, The Great Ridge, Kinder Scout and Bleaklow. My walk then went via the Cowper Stone and Upper Burbage Bridge to Higger Tor. Good views over to Carl Wark. Returned back to Hathersage via Callow Bank and Toothill Farm. Decided to visit Hathersage Church and Little John's Grave (re Robin Hood). It was a really great day.
