Time & Location

Edale car park, Water Meadows, Hope Rd, Edale, Hope Valley S33 7ZQ, UK

About the event

Guided group walk from Edale village up to the eastern edge of Kinder Scout and across the plateau where you'll see:

  • peat groughs
  • Moors For The Future dams
  • large gritstone boulders
  • a trig point

The maximum group number is 6 people and we will walk at an easy conversational pace. As a leader I encourage everyone to enjoy connecting with nature through a sensory experience. There's no pressure to engage in conversation for the whole walk.

Distance: approximately 7 miles

Terrain: steep sections, rocky underfoot on trails, wet and boggy on the moor.
