This was a more challenging walk than usual for the group – at 8 miles and with some steady steep inclines for the first third of the walk until we got onto the top of Kinder Scout. The walk took 5-6 hours but we had plenty of rests en route plus a lunch stop as usual. The paths were quite rough and rocky in places and it was wet under foot – at various points we crossed the stream. So boots were definitely in order – even if cracking the flags! There were no cafes or pubs on the route as this was quite a remote area so we were well prepared with waterproofs just in case the heavens opened while we are on the route – it is quite exposed on Kinder.
