Situated in beautiful surroundings, the YHA/Activity Centre at Edale made for a great place to base for exploring the Dark Peak. On Saturday we headed up onto Kinder Scout to walk the edges. Although the rain came and visibility was not great, the terrain was very interesting, with it’s rocky tors. Down off the hill via Jacob’s ladder and back along the Pennine Way.
Sunday again rather wet, so went to the Blue John Cavern. From the car park it was a short walk to the collapsed road and erosion of Mam Tor.
A great weekend/great area – will certainly visit again
