The weather forecast was for a hot sunny day but in the end it turned out to be an overcast hazy warm day with occasional sunny intervals. It was an interesting walk along the Eastern Gritstone Edges of Derbyshire. On a clear day the views must be fantastic. My walk started in Baslow and included six "Edges". There were lovely views looking from Baslow Edge to Curbar Edge. It was difficult to get lost on this walk as all the paths were very clear. It is a popular place for climbers (which I saw both on Froggatt and Chatsworth Edges).
