Saturday, 29th June 2019   LIFE ON THE EDGE    18 miles  9 hrs   Grade 3
Start Time: 10:00am    Grid Ref: SK229815. Meet at the car park on Oddfellows Road, Hathersage. Postcode S32 1DD. Some free roadside parking is also available, although it does tend to get very busy.
A Saturday walk!! A very challenging 18 mile walk based in the Peak District. For those who completed this walk last year we will walk the route in reverse this year, starting in Hathersage and then taking climbs up to Stanage Edge, Bamford Edge and Win Hill, offering amazing views across the Hope Valley and Ladybower Reservoir. The tough climbs and 18 mile distance make this a grade 3 walk, which needs to be covered at a good pace to ensure it is completed in time. Following the walk we have the choice of eating at either The Yorkshire Bridge in Bamford where the walk finishes, or Maazi in Hathersage, following a 4 minute train journey back to the cars. I'll also be leading a 9-10 mile walk for the group the following day on Sunday, over similar but different terrain for anyone who plans to stay overnight. The nearby Hardhurst Farm offers camping facilities where we have stayed before. Lunch required.

Points to Remember:
1. Please call the walk leader before the walk in case any details have changed.
2. Make sure that you are suitably dressed for the weather. Remember that some walks are on exposed high land and the weather can be cold and wet. Denim jeans are not suitable for high-level walks.
3. Dogs are welcome but only with the prior agreement of the walk leader
4. If the walk leader decides to shorten the walk then that decision is final and is not open to negotiation. The leader will only do this when there is a good reason for doing so.
5. Even if a walk does not state packed lunch, it is always advisable to bring something to eat and drink.
6. If transport is shared, please provide the driver with a share of the fuel costs.
7. Non RA members are welcome to join us for 3 walks before being asked to join the RA. There are no exceptions to this.
8. Regrettably, due to the nature of the Sunday programme, we are unable to accept children on our these walks.
9. Children are welcome on Family Friendly walks.
