I walked to Hope via Peakshole Water and over the railway. Then after walking through the village I continued to Kilhill Bridge and up to Twitchill Farm (and holiday cottages) and then ascended Win Hill. Great views all around from here. To the north was Ladybower Reservoir, to the north west was Kinder Scout and Edale, to the west was The Great Ridge, and to the north east and east was the Eastern Gritstone Edges. The view south was to the Hope Valley. I then descended to Wooler Knoll (although I did not go to the viewpoint) and Fullwood Stile Farm. Next it was over the River Noe and up to Lose Hill (Wards Piece). Again great views from here. I continued along The Great Ridge to Back Tor, Hollins Cross and Mam Tor. The path across the top was quite muddy. Descended back down to Castleton via Blue John and Treak Cliff Show Caverns. It was a great days walking.
