Bleaklow has the edge
Bookmark and Share
Those wholike to go walking on these moors may discover more about the area if they join a trek led by national park rangers this month.

On July 21st a high moorland trek across Bleaklow starts at Glossop at 10:30 BST, lasting for six hours.

The route involves steep climbing and ascends to the 2,077 ft summit of Bleaklow, taking in its scenic western edges along the way.

Walking boots and waterproofs are among the items participants are instructed to wear.

The aspect of the hill may be unfamiliar to those whose normal approach to the top of Bleaklow is the easy route along the Pennine. Way from the car park where the long-distance trail crosses the Snake Pass, which is just 109 m (358 ft) lower than the summit across the plateau.

The west side's slopes include yellow slacks, where a group of ramblers from the British Workers Sports Association were prevented from accessing the moor by gamekeepers in April 1932.

It was this incident that prompted the group's Manchester secretary Benny Rothman to plan the Great Trespass of Kinder Scout later that month.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801407494-ADNFCR
