MCS Walking Group – Walk 10

An Indian Summer walk on a very warm 15th of September.  John led us from Chinley to Hayfield via a section of the Peak Forest Tramway (the line that brought quarried limestone to the canal at Buxworth for transport to Oldknow’s lime kilns in Marple), the hamlet of Wash, and the col between South Head and Mount Famine before dropping down to Peep o’ Day and field paths to Hayfield.

A couple of goats trit-trotting across a bridge.

Following the country code, John insisted on going through the gate.

The route to South Head.  (This is for the next time Ian mentions a walking bass.)

The Hayfield bus stop with ten minutes to spare; time for Roger to change his boots.

And in case anyone wants something more picturesque, we found chicory, haws, great burnet (I think) and crab apples:-

Another excellent day for an excellent walk.
