It has been over eighteen-months since my previous visit to Exmoor; an almost equally strenuous walk that climbed to the highest point, Dunkery Beacon. At the beginning of 2017, I’d vowed to make a greater effort to explore more of Exmoor… Other intentions must’ve interrupted this ambition.
This is yet another Peak District walk with the route taken from The Walking Englishman. I’d like to say that the entire walk resides within the Dark Peak portion of the National Park but, I’m not sure where it ends and the White Peak begins… Even Google can’t provide a consistent answer.
Regardless; a small portion of this walk passes through Edale, making it my first ever walk in Dark Peak of Derbyshire.
I was grateful to be able to do this walk with a friend. In fact, it might’ve been her idea.
It’s a route you can find in Walk West and is only 7.5 miles long. I’d already walked it twice previously and, after a brief conversation with a work colleague, I’d thought of revisiting an area I’d not been to for almost two-years
