WALK NOTES

Edale Railway Station - Grindsbrook Booth - Grindsbrook Clough - Crowden Tower - Woolpacks - Swines Back - Jacobs Ladder - Lee House - Upper Booth - Pennine Way - Grindsbrook Booth - Edale Railway Station

On a cold and overcast day 16 walkers started from Edale Railway Station in aid of raising much needed funds for the Kinder Mountain Rescue Team. Although it was very cold the conditions remained dry but misty on the tops. The route taken was via Grindsbrook Clough to the Kinder Edges. This added a little adventurous walking and easy scrambling over the rocky (and in places icy) terrain. Refreshments were taken at the top of Grindsbrook Clough. The walk continued along the Kinder Edge to Crowden Tower and The Woolpacks (where some time was spent exploring). We descended back to Edale via Swines Back, Jacobs Ladder and the Pennine Way. The walk was just over 8 miles and we arrived back in Edale at the light was beginning to fade. This was a walk that was enjoyed by all. Well done to Ranger Bob from Gruff-Stuff Walks for organising a great day out on the moors.
