The walk starts from Grin Low car park, accessible from Grin Low Road, Harpur Hill. We’ll meet at 10am to start walking at 10:15. Sorry, but this walk is not suitable for dogs. Passing by Stanley Moor reservoir, we’ll walk through the HSE site, skirting High Edge before dropping into the upper reaches of the Dove valley. From there we climb to Brand Top before turning towards the highest part of the route over Axe Edge as far as Dane Head. Heading east, we aim for Leap Edge, looping around Grin Low before the final climb to Solomon’s Temple and back to the car park. This is a walk of striking contrasts, and there are some excellent views, particularly of Hollins Hill and the surrounding area. The walk is about 13 miles with 700m of accumulated ascent. Bring a packed lunch and plenty of fluids, and footwear and clothing suitable for hill walking. Parking costs £2. There is an honesty box set into the wall of the toilet facilities building in the car park. Satnav users who need a postcode should use SK17 6UJ. Walk leader: Diana Blankley. If you have RSVP'd YES and subsequently find you can't attend, please change your RSVP to NO as soon as you can. We often have waiting lists, so this enables someone else to go if you can’t. Please note we won’t be waiting for latecomers.
