The group will be heading for the famous gritstone escarpment on the edge of the the Peak District’s Dark Peak area, with a choice of two routes – and ‘stunning views to enjoy’ promised on whichever route chosen.

The rambles will start from Grindleford Station and follow the River Derwent into Hathersage for a break.

From there, it is up onto Stanage Edge and along to High Neb, for a lunchtime picnic stop.
