June 16, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - June 18, 2017 @ 7:00 pm


Organisers – Richie & Rick
Where – YHA Eyam, Hope Valley, Derbyshire, S32 5QP
When – 16th-18th June 2017 (Fri-Sun)
Cost – £119.00 (includes 2 nights accommodation and guided walks)


We will depart London Friday evening with car sharing available for those that need transport. Our accommodation is YHA Eyam where I have booked a number of female,male and mixed bedrooms.  YHA Eyam (Beech Hurst) is a Victorian folly resembling a tiny turreted castle perched on the hillside above the historic village of Eyam.  The house was built in 1887 – the Golden Jubilee year of Queen Victoria and has all we need for a great stay in the Peak District, bedding is provided.  You will need to bring your own food for breakfasts and packed lunches but if you want to pay extra you can book a full breakfast and even packed lunches from the hostel (let me know in advance).

On Saturday our walk is a Peak District classic, Stanage Edge.  It’s a 15 minute drive from the hostel to Hathersage where the walk starts from. A 10 mile (16km) route will see us pass North Lees, visited by Charlotte Bronte and featured in Jane Eyre.  We then head to Stanage Edge, and if we look closely we can see abandoned millstones.  Stanage Edge is popular with climbers and sometimes paragliders too.  The ridge offers some spectacular views, particularly from High Neb.  We then head to Burbage Rocks and Higger Tor before returning to Hathersage where there will be time for a tea shop or visit to one of the quality outdoor shops in the village.  On Saturday evening we can either eat out as a group at a local pub, or self-cater at the accommodation.

On Sunday we will drive 30 minutes to Longnor where our 9 mile (14.5km) walk starts in the village square.  Our route provides extensive views of the Dove Valley and includes the peaks of Parkhouse Hill and Chrome Hill.  We should be back at the vehicles in Longnor by 3pm and so you can expect to be back in London by about 7pm.
