Event description

Description

Glossop - Lightside - Dog Rock - Higher Shelf Stones - James's Thorn - Old Glossop (approx 12km)

GRADE: MEDIUM (3.5 hours)
Max elevation: 620m

Welcome to Freshwalks, bringing together North West business folk in the majestic setting of the Peak District. This time we are taking an early evening route which is a shorter twist on an old favourite. The plan is to head up Lightside towards the brooding plateau of Bleaklow. We'll then head south towards Higher Shelf Stones for an evening picnic before descending back into Old Glossop via James's Thorn just ahead of sunset.

We intend to take the 16:28 train from Manchester Piccadilly to arrive in Glossop at 17:01. We'll start the walk immediately and expect the route to take 4 hours, allowing for a decent picnic stop on the peaks.

Don't forget, you will need to bring a good supply of water.

We expect to be back in Old Glossop around 21:00 where we will head to the Wheatsheaf for a couple of drinks. Trains run back to Piccadilly every half hour until 22:48.

Hope you can join us, Michael.

This walk is being organised as part of a 6 month training programme for the Prevent Breast Cancer team hiking up to Everest Base Camp in November.
