DATE

We will meet at the Millers Dale Station Car Park at 9am.  Come ready for an adventure!  This is our venue for an outstanding bridge abseil.

The nearest postcode is SK17 8SN but this covers a large area, so you will need to check a map beforehand.  Alternatively, you can enter 53.256145,-1.793788 into Google Maps and you will be pointed to the exact spot.  This is a Pay & Display car park and currently the charge is £3.50 for a half day.

From the abseil it’s off to the lovely surroundings of Cliff College where we’ll relax and have some lunch, which we can arrange.  

Cliff College is a great venue in the heart of the Dark Peak for a lunch stop and it also has excellent conference facilities making it easy to give a presentation or have a time of discussion.

After lunch we’ll head out for an unforgettable trek in the wilds of the Bleaklow area of the Peaks on a mission to find expansive vistas, mountain hares and the wreck of a second world war bomber!

We’ll finish the day at the Snake Summit laybys, where the Pennine Way crosses the Snake Pass.  The grid reference is SK 088 928 or 53.432876, -1.869008 will point you to the spot in Google Maps.

What is Sure Footing?!

Sure Footing is an outdoor adventure charity based in Sheffield working with local groups of young people, offering subsidised adventures to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.  Your course fee helps to make this possible.  Please do have a look around the website to find out more. 

What else do I need to know?

You will be out in the Peaks for most of the day, so wrap up warmly. 

Please make sure you bring the following: 

  • Waterproof coat.
  • Waterproof trousers or spare trousers.
  • Walking boots with a good tread.
  • Any medicine you would normally have with you.

Note on the walk: The distance is just over 6 km and much of the walking is easy-going on the Pennine Way, but we will leave the path and move over rough terrain for about one kilometre as well as crossing a small stream several times, so a basic level of fitness and mobility is important.
