Peak District – Wildboar Clough Scramble & Bleaklow

This week my friend Ray and I headed up on to Bleaklow via what is perhaps one of my favourite routes in the glorious Peak District, Wildboar Clough. It really is an excellent route and if you stick to the course of the river it can become pretty challenging in wet weather. We started the day by having breakfast in Hadfield, Ray and I always like going there as it was the filming location for perhaps one of the best British comedies of all time..... The League of Gentleman. Hadfield or should Read more [...]

The Pennine Way – 7 Days from Edale to Thwaite

This is an HD video of my Pennine Way adventure in April 2013, we walked for 7 Days from Edale to Thwaite and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Thank you to everyone who followed at the time and I hope to venture back again soon to tick of the northern half of this great trail. In the next few weeks I will be updating the existing Pennine Way posts with images from my DSLR. I will also be doing a summary Read more [...]

Peak District – Bleaklow in the Snow

It always seems that when my friend Andy and I go walking we always get rain. We don't mind though as we will walk no matter what the weather, today however the roll of bad luck had finally ended. We got the most beautiful wintery conditions with perfect blue skies, snow, ice and the hills to ourselves. We sett off from Birchin Clough at around 09:45, headed down in the Lady Clough and then up the path through the Pine Forest. We crossed over to Doctors Gate, walked along the Roman Road and then Read more [...]

Peak District – Bleaklow

Another week and another brand new route. I decided once again to head for the Birchin Clough car park on the Snake Road, this place has fast become a firm favourite for me. The area is just simply stunning. The beautiful pine forests with Kinder Scout lurking to the south makes for great viewing. Today however, the aim wasn't Kinder, it was another peat covered favourite by the name of Bleaklow. I set off from the Birchin Clough car park at around 10am and headed over the road down into the Read more [...]

Peak District – Howden, Bleaklow & Alport

After my windy walk with Andy last week ("Peak District – Ladybower & Alport Dale") I decided it was high time for another Peak District outing. There has been rather a drought when it comes to walking of late, what with one thing and another I just haven't had the time to head out. I feel as though I have made up for it today though with a good route and some fantastic views thrown in, so without further ado here is my summary of where I headed and what I got up to. I parked up this Read more [...]
