The club continues its summer programme with ‘a beautiful 13-mile ramble covering some of the best views in the Peak District’ on Sunday, August 7.

The club is heading for Edale and Kinder, in the Dark Peak area of the Peak District for ‘an attractive walk’ with few ascents and descents – with a shorter option of about seven miles also available.

A club spokesman said: “We leave Hayfield and walk along the valley past Kinder Reservoir.”
