MARCH 2018 WALK EVERY DAY FOR A WEEK CHALLENGE – DAY 3

It’s Wednesday and I again went for the Longshaw guided walk. These free walks take place every Wednesday and Sunday and are approximately 2 hours long. Meet up is next to the cafe at 11am. 

We took the path towards to Wooden Pole car park but about half way through we took the steps to the left,  up the hill.

We then walked towards Wooden Pole which is a packhorse route marker from the 1700’s, marking the route up from Hathersage.  It’s not the original, but it’s been there many years.

We followed the path to the end and crossed the road towards the White Edge Lodge.

We then went down to the road which we crossed and took the path above the Grouse Inn through the Jubilee Wood towards the Tumbling Hill. What a view over Grindelford! One day I will come back here and will have a picnic enjoying that view again.

We carried on through a field via Oak’s Wood, along the Grindelford Edge back to Longshaw Cafe.

You can take dogs on these walks, but they have to be on a lead especially now as it is a lambing season.
