Dennis Knoll Car Park - Bamford Edge - Bamford Moor - Moscar Moor - Stanage End - High Neb - Stanage Edge - Long Causeway - Dennis Knoll Car Park


Sunday’s walk started from the Dennis Knoll car park north of Hathersage. Originally there as meant to be 8 walkers today but the numbers had dwindled again to 4 (myself, Angela and her husband John, and Phil Winter who had travelled from Leeds). The weather was poor to start with - rain and mist. However as the day progressed the sun came out and and views improved dramatically. Although there were only 4 of us it was a very enjoyable day.

We set off from Dennis Knoll and followed a minor road to the start of Bamford Edge. After ascending from the road and gaining access to Bamford Edge we followed a path to a great viewpoint with Ladybower Reservoir and Win Hill (amongst other peaks) in sight. It was quite misty with drizzle while we were there. On a clear sunny day the view would have been fantastic. We then crossed Bamford Moor to Stanage End. This was marshy and very wet in places but caused us no problems. Before we climbed the last few metres onto Stanage Edge we paused for refreshments.

The walk along Stanage Edge was lovely as the sun had now come out. The views were fantastic and many photos were taken. We visited High Neb trig point (458 metres) during the walk along Stanage Edge. Our route back was via a very stony/rocky path to Dennis Knoll. A land rover and several scrambling bikes tried to manoeuvre up and down the very treacherous ground.

We had drinks at the Yorkshire Bridge Inn before returning home.

Again this was a fantastic day which was enjoyed by all. Can’t wait until the next meeting!!
