WALK NOTES

Middleton Top - High Peak Trail - Hopton Tunnel - Hopton Incline - Kings Chair - Carsington - Brassington - Rainster Rocks - Longcliffe - High Peak Trail - Harborough Rocks - Hopton Incline - Hopton Tunnel - Middleton Top

After a cloudy start the day turned out to be sunny and quite mild. Starting from Middleton Top once more I started to walk in the opposite direction this time towards Rainster and Harborough Rocks. The paths are mainly very easy to follow. However the way towards Brassington from Carsington requires a few navigational skills. The views from Harborough Rocks were supurb.
