Good boots needed for Peak walk
Bookmark and Share
A walk in the Peak District run by national park rangers will require good walking boots and outdoor clothing when it takes place on July 24th.

The trek, which will explore Bleaklow's western edges, sets out from Glossop at 10:30 BST, ending at 16:30 and including a walk of "miles over exposed moorlands, strenuous with some steep climbs".

Having the right clothing and boots is something the national park website advises, along with bringing a packed lunch and a drink.

Glossop is located at the foot of the Snake Pass and those who would try to climb Bleaklow the easy way can drive up to the top of the pass, where it is crossed by the Pennine Way en route to the summit.

Bleaklow Head stands 2,077 ft above sea level, the second highest point in Derbyshire, with only the 2,088 ft Kinder Scout being loftier.

Also near Bleaklow is Higher Shelf Stones at 2,021 ft, close to one of several crashed plane wrecks on the High Peak moors.
