Pre-order food at 09.45.  Usual room booked for lunch at 12.30-ish

Depart at: 10.00

Distance: about 4.35 miles

Description: a well-loved walk on the Longshaw estate, taking in Hay Wood, Tumbling Hill, Oak's Wood, a coffee stop by the Burbage Brook (bathing optional); and a gradual climb back via the Wooden Pole and White Edge.  Points of interest - site of a medieval settlement and the kitchen garden at Longshaw (toilets also available here).   Adders, highland cattle and flying ants may be seen, plus a wealth of wild flowers in the meadows.

 

Risk assessment: high probability of uneven surfaces, a corridor of bracken fern, nettles.  Low probability of drowning or having to eat the wrong sort of chocolate biscuits. 

Remember to bring: insect repellent!
