About this event

***PLEASE NOTE THIS WALK HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO SPRING 2022 (DATE TBC)***

Longnor - Dowel Dale - Chrome Hill - Parkhouse Hill - Longnor

GRADE: MEDIUM/HARD (short route but involves some steep and technical sections which could prove tricky in certain weather conditions)

Distance: 11.6km

Max elevation: 421m

Total ascent: 489m

Welcome to Freshwalks, bringing business people together through a simple combination of walking and talking. This challenging route explores the iconic pair of ancient limestone reef knolls, Chrome Hill and Parkhouse Hill. Erupting harshly from the rolling green landscape of the White Peak, these two peaks resemble a dragon's back from afar and offer outstanding views of the surrounding countryside.

We intend to meet in the Market Place in Longnor from 10:15 onwards and start the walk no later than 10:30. You can take the 09:08 train from Manchester to Buxton and we'll look to organise either car or taxi sharing for the 7 miles journey to our meeting point.

We'll return to Longnor, mid-afternoon (approx 14:30) and will head to a village pub for optional food and refreshments,

Don't forget, you will need to wear some appropriate footwear and bring a bottle of water - and perhaps a packed lunch to enjoy somewhere en-route.

Hope you can join us.

FAQs

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

An event pack will be sent out at least 72 hours before the walk. This should answer most things but feel free to email michael@freshwalks.co.uk with any questions you may have. If you've not received the pack by this time, check your email junk or spam and then contact us. Receiving this pack is essential as it includes important disclaimers and health and safety information.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, you're fine as you are. We keep track of the attendees and check you off on arrival. However, if you have a confirmation email saved onto your phone, this may be useful on the rare occasion that there are any issues.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

If you can no longer make it, please be sure to contact us with at least 24 hours notice. We try to be as accommodating as possible and understand that work commitments may pop up. Therefore, if you do need to transfer your ticket to a colleague, please contact us with their full details so we can organise the transfer in good time including the signing of the relevant legal disclaimers.
