Stanage Edge is a remarkable rock face that extends like a wall from a sci-fi movie across the moorlands of the Peak District. It also attracts loads of rock climbers and walkers making it a really interesting hike.

We will start from Hathersage town and meet outside Coleman’s Deli, 5 Main Rd, Hathersage – this is set back a little from the road (next to Maazi Indian). If you arrive early grab a coffee and cake!

Then we’ll head out of town across the beautiful countryside towards North Lees Hall, before climbing up through a wood and rambling stream – then taking Jacob’s Ladder which meanders and climbs to the top of Stanage crags.

From the summit we’ll take in several trig points, walk along the edge and take in the marvellous views. Then we'll head along the gritstone escarpment taking in hopefully an ice-cream and ascend Higger Tor before making our way back to Hathersage in time for a refreshing pint.
