We advertised this walk for a Wednesday, but since the weather was foul and nobody was tied to the day, we changed it to a much fairer Thursday. The party took the snake path from Hayfield up onto the moor, then dropped down below Kinder Reservoir to cross to the foot of Kinder Low End. The path up is well established on the ground – indeed, part of it is, in effect, a staircase – but not marked on the OS map. Down via Swine’s Back, Edale Cross, bridleways, field paths and a deal of mud.

This week’s Des Res.
Thin people with very small heads? Roger seems to have turned into a stick puppet and Stuart into some sort of dinosaur. Sarah looks comparatively normal, once you realise that she is wearing a bobble hat, although she does seem to have gained flared trousers.
This pair seem to be a strange cross of ovine, alpaca and Old English Sheepdog.
