Join Skip and Ade for this classic Peak District high moorland walk. 

Starting off from the Grindleford Station Café, we head up Padley Gorge along Burbage Brook and across onto Hathersage Moor.  Hathersage Moor and the Burbage Valley is surrounded by the long, exposed gritstone of Burbage Rocks on one side and the two peaks of Higger Tor and the pre-historic hill fort of Carl Wark on the other. 

Depending on weather we may head out along the impressive Stanage Edge.  After taking a break for lunch in a peaceful spot with a sweeping view of this stunning valley, we make our way back to Grindleford via the National Trust’s Longshaw Estate.  

Longshaw was the hunting lodge built in the 1830s for the Duke of Rutland to entertain parties of visitors as they bagged their grouse from the nearby moorland.
