Wednesday Walk: 3

[Since I’m not able to ramble as much as I’d like at the moment, I’m remembering some hikes from the past.]

Along Derwent Edge

Up on the moor. Eroded trails restored using old flagstones.

This hike begins and ends at Ladybower Reservoir, Derbyshire. After a steep climb it’s pretty easy walking across rolling moorland. It’s a great route, made even more interesting by the fantastic shapes carved into the gritstone outcrops.

I jocularly refer to these outcrops as “dinosaur droppings”
I guess these are Derbyshire’s version of “hoodoos”
