WALK NOTES

Dennis Knoll Car Park - The Long Causeway - Stanage Edge - Stanedge Pole - Redmires Reservoirs - Surrey Farm - Crawshaw Lodge - Crawshaw Farm - Wet Shaw Lane - Stake Hill Road - Moscar - Stanage Edge - High Neb - The Long Causeway - Dennis Knoll Car Park

On a bright and sunny day I walked from Dennis Knoll to Stanage Edge and beyond. My route followed the ancient track of the Long Causeway up on to Stanage Edge. Then following the same track I visited Stanedge Pole on my way to Redmires Reservoirs. Today the nearest of the reservoirs was dried up. Strangely there were very few birds around for the pools that were left. A little further on was the curious Head Stone where someone had painted a smiley face on its top stone. Carrying on and after passing Surrey Farm and Crawshaw Lodge I crossed Rod Moor (I did not visit the Trig Point) to Platts Farm. During this time a very large old plane (looked like a Wellington or Lancaster) flew overhead being escorted by two Spitfires. I guess they were probably on there way to the Derwent and Howden Dams. My return journey went via the Stake Hill Road (another ancient track) across Ughill Moor. Eventually I walked along Stanage edge to High Neb Trig Point. A great day out in the Peaks.
