Location: Mam Tor

Leader Bob Armstrong
Depart Time Stretford 9.00am
Travel Time 45 minutes
Grade Moderate
Distance 8 miles
Map Explorer OL1 The Dark Peak
Postcode S33 8WA (Blue John Cavern)
Grid Ref SK130833
Approx Ascent 1000 ft.
Brief Description Ample parking on the road down to Blue John Cavern. From there climb to the summit of Mam Tor (250ft - 300ft depending on exact spot we park).
Walk along the ridge to Back Tor, then through Brocket Booth Plantation to meet the path dropping from the summit of Lose Hill. Downhill to Hope.
From Hope take the riverside path to Castleton.
Walk through fields to Dunscar Farm and then take the abandoned road back to the car park (climb of about 650ft). Walking poles advisable for path downhill to Hope which can be 'greasy'.
This is the walk planned for the end of November which was 'snowed off'! Hopefully the weather will be kinder this time and much of last week's snow will have gone.
