PEAK DISTRICT BOUNDARY WALK:
Saturday 17th June:
Join us for The Peak District Boundary Walk – this is a brand new long distance 190 miles walk following (quite closely) to the actual boundary of the Peak District National Park. It has been devised over the past two years and follows existing footpaths, bridleways and quiet lanes.
The walk is divided into 20 stages, all of which are between 6.5 and 11.5 miles long, enabling walkers to tackle each stage in one day. To this end they have detoured away from the exact boundary slightly on occasion in order for the start/ finish points to have at least a car park, bus stop, shop, toilet, or pub.
The stages are as follows: Buxton – Peak Forest – Hayfield – Glossop – Greenfield – Marsden – Holme – Langsett – Low Bradfield – Ringinglow – Millthorpe – Beeley – Winster – Roystone Grange – Thorpe – Waterfall – Tittesworth Reservoir – Wildboarclough – Bollington – Whaley Bridge.
As with all long distance walks, many of the walkers like to get a ‘Passport’ type document stamped when they’ve walked each stage.
On the day of the official Launch of this new walk, there will be groups of walkers setting off from each of the stages at 10am in the morning. All stages are putting on bit of a send – off for the walkers.
This looks set to become one of the more popular distance walks for the area, so get involved!
