11th & 12th August 2012
The first bus from Leek on Sunday to Buxton is at 10:20am, arriving in Buxton Market Place about 25mins later. Probably too late for the walk?
On Sat the first Bus arrives in Buxton Market place at 08:50am
I might be able to make the dark peak one. Steven, would there be room from Chapel?
Or I could walk I suppose...

Hi Simon, if you can get a bus to Buxton then we should be able to give you a lift wherever we're headed All welcome to join us Milly, Sat & Sun No longer the office manager should be able to do at least one Stephen for the weekend Lesley Ann for the weekend Rach perhaps Twiglegs if he can find suitable transport JJ if it wasses it down, or worse! LittleMissMaria, Sat and Sun Simon Daniels, on a bus ok for Saturday, dunno about Sunday yet Jim Parkin for the Dark Peak, perhaps

Simon, the Saturday bus will be fine, but the Sunday will be too late. Will see what can be done...but much closer to the time.
Duly noted, usual proviso apply...
Where are we going on Saturday?

Dunno yet. Guess I'd better make a plan Check again this weekend...
On saturday, I was surprised at how quiet the North East side of Kinder was.
My route, which should also have some stats - I'm still playing with this as I've only justt realised my phone can do this...
It was also drier than I thought.
I will be a maybe for the sunday see how I feel after cricket on the saturday
I'm doing Kinder via Williams Clough this morning - about 9 miles. I'm taking my satmap so I can save the route.
Hope you had a good day, Simon.
Right. A bit of a plan...
meet in Hartington village centre (e.g. by the pond) at 10am. There are a few free parking spaces in the centre (but doubt there'll be any by then) and a Pay & Display car park a little way out on the B5054 Mill Lane. Can provide lifts from/to Buxton
Will 12 miles be ok? I was thinking of heading out to Ecton Hill. Bring butties!!
Sunday: I'm still waiting for Dark Peak inspiration...
Start from Ladybower Inn, up the Edges all the way to Margery Hill then down, pick up bus at Kings Tree to Fairholmes, across reservoir and alongside back to Inn.
Start from Ladybower Inn, up the Edges, down to Fairholmes from Lost Lad up Crook Hills down to cross A57 and up the plantation to Edale Cross then Win Hill then down to Yorkshire Bridge.
Should keep you busy them two...
Are you leading the way, hon?
Sounds good. I'm trying to increase my mileage a little. I usually do short-ish, punishing walks such as Crome, Parkhouse and High Weeldon on my own, so it will be good to add a little spice to the mix.
See you all on Saturday 11th - bus times permitting.
Milly or Stephen, is there still room for a lift on Sunday? I'm guessing you'd be going along the Chapel-Castleton road, so If I get to that junction with the A6, it wouldn't add too much to the driving distance...
I'm gonna have to give this a miss, i'm still getting frequent twinges in my back affecting the leg so 12 miles would be a big risk, and i'd probably hold people up too.
I will make a meet one day.

Hi Jim, yes, no probs, I can pick you up at that junction, about 09:40?
My thoughts for a Sunday walk are to meet at the Moorland Centre in Edale at 10am (good for anyone coming in by train as well as for drivers). Walk along the valley and up onto Kinder via Jacobs Ladder (unless someone has a better idea) to Kinder Low. Then along the edge to Pym Chair and Crowden Tower, perhaps making a little detour to Grindslow Knoll, and descend from Ringing Rodger back to Edale. It'll be 10 miles, plus whatever diversions and detours we make while playing on the plateau
Hey Hippy, the Saturday walk is 12 miles ish, but Sunday is shorter and might be ok for you?
