Kinder walk a hidden gem
Bookmark and Share
Some may imagine that Kinder Scout is a mountain whose every nook and cranny is well known, with the access to every part of the moor being such an emotive issue in rambling history.

But the Roych may be off the beaten track to some, making it an interesting walk organised by Peak District national park rangers for July 1st.

The event starts in the Bowden Bridge Car Park in the Kinder Valley near Hayfield at 10:30 BST and covers ten miles of rough terrain.

Rather than crossing the main massif, it visits an area to the south of Brown Knoll near Rushup Edge, where Roych Brook lies.

Described as a place of "hidden beauty" by the authority, it will require participants to come well-equipped with waterproofs and walking boots.

The Kinder massif contains a number of lesser-visited spots and ironically, one of these is the actual highest point of the flat-topped mountain.

It is hard to find, not reached by well marked paths and consists of a small cairn, while many could easily mistake the trig point on a boulder at nearby Kinder Low for the summit.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801389724-ADNFCR
