Snake Path Anniversary with PNFS  28-05-2017

Five Rossy Ramblers joined 70 other walkers from different areas and organisations, on a Peak and Northern Commemoration walk, 120 years since the protest that saved the path for future walkers.

After 10 minutes we were in the hills, with outstanding views and forty shades of green.

We proceeded on the path overlooking Kinder Reservoir where Agatha Christie wrote some of her books in beautiful surroundings. We then came to William Clough and a steady climb in single file with a brook for company, and took our first break. The weather was improving all the time and after we reached Ashop Clough one and a half hours later, dinner time.

Ashop Clough is a long descent with the east Kinder escarpment a prominent feature and again, a brook for company. This was excellent walking: balmy, green and some mud!

After the finish at the Snake Pass Pub, a mini bus took us back to our start in Hayfield where tea and cakes were partaken.

A really good day out.

    Well done to all on the pics, write up, and getting it all on the Web so quickly, given the logistics.
