Good walking boots a must for Peak walk
Bookmark and Share
A "strenuous" ranger-led walk in the Peak District next month requires good walking boots and waterproof jackets, it has been noted.

The Peak District National Park Authority is running the event on March 20th, starting and ending in Glossop between 10:30 GMT and 16:30 GMT.

Described as featuring "rough ground" and "steep ascents", this is an event for experienced walkers and will start by crossing Chunal Moor to the south of the town, before crossing the Snake Pass and reaching its highest point at Higher Shelf Stones, before returning to Glossop.

Those taking part may also wish to buy an Ordnance Survey map of the area to help navigate.

Higher Shelf Stones stands 2,021 ft above sea level and is marked by a trig point.

Part of the Bleaklow plateau, it lies close to the Pennine Way and among the nearby features is one of several wreckages of planes that crashed on the moor in wartime.
